Felted Purse

I took a workshop with Carin Engen today on making felted purse. What fun! We worked the felt around a template cut from a blue tarp.

Layer 1

1st layer in eggplant

At this point, it looks a bit like Sasquatch pelt.

2nd Layer

2nd layer in progress

Then we cut out the handle and then the inside cut section becomes the flap. The other flap is folded inside and will be a pocket.

Finished purse!

The pink design is supposed to be a jelly fish. You may have to squint and use a lot of imagination.

I finally got around to winding these off of the bobbins. I don’t remember where I purchased the fiber. I think it is Crown Mountain Fibers. I’ve lost the tag so I don’t know what the color way is either.
