I have sewn this lovely purse from a piece of my own handmade wool felt, the inside is lined with a stunning green cotton fabric - Roman Glass by Kaffe Fassett. I have used a good quality zip for the main closure and a stunning handcrafted large green ceramic button (from Buttonalia here on Etsy). I have added a nice felted zipper pull cord too.

My work just lately has been very much inspired by the work of renowned Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser, I love his use of colour and spiraling designs.. and his love of nature.

I made a nice sturdy piece of felt with a colourful spirals design, the spirals are 'drawn' on before felting in merino fibre and slubby and boucle yarns for texture. The felt is big enough to allow me to make a series of 4 purses - this is the second I have made, each will be different but the colour theme/character will be the same.

I have used white Falkland wool fibrefor the back of the felt, with duck-egg blue and bilberry coloured merino for the front. During the felting process fibres migrate through from one side to the other, the white fibres coming through to the front gives the felt a delicious heathery look. It allows all these colours to come together and be very easy on the eye.

Measurements:
5.75" (14.5cm) wide x 5" (13cm) deep
Button 38mm diameter

I have a very similar purse which I use everyday - and I love it. Big enough to hold cash and cards, I can get my hand in there to pull things out easily. It FEELS so nice in the hand..

This purse compliments my Hundertwasser inspired bag which is currently listed, if you should wish to purchase both together please convo me first.. if brought together I will deduct £5 from the total price, and ship the purse at no extra cost.

Easy to care for:
Care leafelt will be included, but heres the basics. Woolfelt rarely needs washing, it is nturally dirt and odour repellant - most often a quick shake and air out is all thats needed.
If you DO need to wash it; a simple handwash, rinse thoroughly, quick SPIN ONLY or press between 2 towels to remove excess water, reshape and dry naturally.
As with all wool felt do NOT use washing machine or tumble drier.
