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.
