New Felted Purse

Here is my new felted purse. I could not find my pattern from the Pattern-a-Day Calendar from 2009, so I winged this from memory. It turned out that I made the button hole a little smaller than I wanted. However I still like how it turned out.

My husband says that it looks like it is made from dryer lint :( I can't complain, it is Bernat's felting wool and it was on sale.

  2. If you are not satisfied with it, then make some changes, like putting a suede yarn border around it, embellish it with elegant flowers and buttons in a contrasting color; put a leather strap. I cannot tell so very well from the picture. It does look solid.
