Back to the purse... It has a purple faux crocodile strap, a d-ring decoration holding a chain of coins with RD at the bottom and a silver heart embellishment. The edges and inside pocket are trimmed with a pretty yarn using the felting machine.
I lined with a pretty purple cotton print, made a cell phone and an extra pocket. And a magnetic snap closure....
I think felted purses are my favorite purses to make... they are so different.
And I think its cool to make something that can't exactly be remade. I'll never find another ugly sweater at Goodwill like this one.. and even if I did it may not "felt up" the same way.
Also, my Mom had a good ideal to use a mans shirt to line the purses with... and since I like to line purses with prints and stripes, thats perfect! Plus The Bald Man has a ton of shirts he's outgrown too!!!
Talk about one of a kind purses! And upcycling!!! I love it when that happens!
My new toy??? YES! A Kandi's Pro Touch rhinestone applicator!!! I'm SO excited and can't wait to use this!!!
