The Wool Purse and Hat are Finished

I finished my wool purse based on Maggie Bonanomi's pattern that was in the Primitive Quilts & Projects Magazine.  This is the front.  I do get carried away with embellishing.
Such a great pattern.  This is the back with the wool closure folded over.  Have found that a magnet is not really needed to keep it in place.  If you place the straps just close enough in from the edge, it will hold the wool in place. 
The entire back folded out, yep, I do love to embellish on wool.  That Sue Spargo influence.  No surface left bare, or until your fingers start hurting.  I used the vintage fabric from Brannock & Patek for the lining, straps and also for the lining of the hat.
The hat.  Same embellishing and lining fabric with an embellishment stitch on the top of the hat.

I need, I must make myself draw up the pattern for the hat.  Will let you all know when I make myself do that.

  1. Over embellishing I think not!! I love it and think you did a cracking good job on both the hat AND the purse. Do you sell these? They are brilliant!

    I have question.I am looking for the pattern of a special quilt by Yoko Saito and now I found this marvellous quilt on your blog. You wrote that you got the pattern by a blogger from Spain. I looked at her blog,but she didn`t post since December.
    Would you be so kind to send me this pattern?? I`ll pay for it and other costs you have.
    Please let me know, if it is possible....I would be so happy .
    Best wishes

  14. Rachel, I do sell the hats, but they have to be made special order to fit the size of your head.

    Constance, I make hats, but for myself, I only wear ski hats to keep my head warm or a baseball hat in the summer.
