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.
At this point, it looks a bit like Sasquatch pelt.
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.
The pink design is supposed to be a jelly fish. You may have to squint and use a lot of imagination.
