This fun and practical felted wool purse is the perfect accessory for spring. All materials used have been recycled, prewashed and felted by me to create this one of a kind purse. The lime green sweater and vibrant tropical print lining were thrift store purchases, the "red-ish" -orange flowers were made from a wool scarf that my friend Patricia "accidentally" felted, the vintage buttons came from my Mom's button jar and the bamboo handles were from an old purse from the 70's. All originally designed and handmade by me.

The purse measures 12 inches in width, 7 inches from top to bottom minus the handles and 3 inches in depth. The bamboo handles are 8 inches by 5 inches. The entire purse is interfaced with heavy interfacing for durability and to help keep its shape. The hand sewn lining peeks out at the top for for an extra splash of tropical blue, greens, reds and oranges and features a pocket for your cell phone or other items. The felted wool flowers were designed to mimick the tropical flowers in the lining. On the curving floral stem at the front and the top edge of the purse I added a running embroidery stitch as a finishing touch and for additional durability. .A magnetic snap on the inside is used for the center closure.

Step into spring with this fun, casual, one of a kind bag. You are sure to be noticed!
