On the Second Day of December I made a .....

purse for a good friend. I used some wool check I had leftover from a coat for me. Made the handles from corduroy and then embroidered the flowers on felted wool. I hot glued the flowers onto pin backs and my daughter arranged them on the purse. The wool doesn't have much body, even with a pretty stiff interfacing (2 layers). I think it will be fine.

    Those flowers are fantastic! I love how much texture they have. The bag looks great too!

    Did you MAKE those flowers? I haven't made a bag out of wool, but I can imagine it isn't super sturdy. Have you ever tried fusible fleece in a bag? If I was sturdy, I'll put that AND interlining in. I like black, white, and red together.
