Custom heirloom purses are a unique way to share wonderful memories of a family member using one of their wool or natural fiber sweaters or coats. These purses make wonderful birthday, Mother's Day, Christmas and anytime gifts.

This listing is for one hand-made heirloom felted purse using your natural fiber (wool, alpaca, cashmere, lambswool, etc.) sweater or coat. Unfortunately, sweater vests are not acceptable since the added sleeve material, they generally don't provide enough material for an entire purse.

The purses pictured are all examples of custom handbags that I have made for my customers using their heirloom sweaters and coats. Your purse will be unique and one-of-a-kind.

Not sure what you'd like? Convo me and we'll work out a plan for preserving your special memories.


Here's how it works:

I will contact you as soon as you purchase this listing to discuss the details of your purse. You will then ship your sweater to me (the cost of which is not included in this listing) so I can begin the redesign process.

During the felting process your sweater will shrink, which sometimes greatly reduces its size and available yardage. The final size of your felted sweater/coat will ultimately determine the size, shape and handle length of your purse.

After the felting process is complete, I will convo you to discuss purse design options based on the final size and shape of the sweater material.

Once the design has been finalized, I will select a designer cotton fabric to use for the lining. However, if you would like to send me a fabric your own choosing, you may include 3/4 yard of a cotton fabric with your sweater when you ship it to me. (Please keep in mind that if you choose this option the price of your purse will not be reduced.)

Your purse will be completed and shipped within 1 - 2 weeks from the day I receive your sweater in the mail.

****IMPORTANT: Once I start the felting process on your sweater, it will no longer be wearable.****
