Done! Fur purse with felted insides.

Post Number:#1  Unread postby GBov » Sat May 25, 2019 5:48 pm


Rex hide, vegetable tanned. The felt strap and lining was wet felted.

The Pirate theme fit my mood, skull button and ocean colored strap. :D

The lining as it dried.

The button is carved from soft shell turtle shell.

There you go, my latest project finished. I LOVE it and I don't carry a purse. :lol:

Thank you. :D

My daughter loves it but not in those colors so guess who is working on another purse? This one will be pink with white fur.

And she wants a heart button, not a skull.

Sometimes I wonder how she can possibly be related to me. :lol: :lol: :lol:

No, I took all the leftover bits of fiber from other projects, the brightest ones and made it from that. So sheep's wool, in other words.

The purse was floppy so needed stiffening and that was all I could think of. It worked a treat. :D

I am glad you like it! Now, if someone would see it on Etsy and like it enough to buy it, result! :lol:
