A Purse for DeLoris

I recently posted about a purse I made from wool given to me by my friend DeLoris. I knew that as soon as I showed it too her that she would love it and want one too.

I didn't want to make an exact copy of my purse; mine was actually too large for DeLoris. So I went digging for inspiration to make a different purse. I found my idea in an old quilting magazine. I reduced the size of the original pattern to 75%.

Once I got all of the felted wool machine stitched on I started doing the handwork. Yeah, I got carried away! I ended up doing an outline stitch over the machine stitching, as well as the rest of the stitching. It's a sickness.
