This felted wool purse was so fun to create! To start, I found a wonderfully shaped beach stone when our family took a day trip to the nearby ocean. It was so smooth and had the perfect shape for what I was wanting to create. I wrapped some local, brown wool around it (I love the natural color of this wool!) and felted it around the stone, using only water and lavender dr.bronner's soap. The soap gave it the most incredible smell of lavender. Then I sliced a hole along the top and took the stone out. I let the wool pouch dry by our woodstove.
Then I took more of the local brown wool and needle-felted it on to thicken it in places where I wanted more wool and give it even more of the shape I was wanting. Then I cut a flap out of a blue sweater that I had felted (and rescued from a thrift shop. It had a moth hole in the arm and was just waiting for a new life!) I stitched the flap on with some grey wool yarn. I loved the handmade look that the hand-stitches gave to the purse. I added a handmade deer antler button that my husband Jeff made from a naturally shed antler. Then I added a strap made from another wool sweater that I rescued and felted.
This purse is small. The space for holding things inside is rather tiny. It was made for the one who travels lightly.
Lovingly handmade for someone out there to enjoy.


Measurements: The opening is about 3 inches tall at the top.
