Raw Fleece Purse With Leather Strap- Part 2 of 2

The back side of the finished purse...

 
...and a close-up.

 
The purse front...

 
...with leather buttonhole and vintage button.



To fashion the strap, I cut a long strip of thick black leather...

...and stitched it in half, 'suede side out'...

 
...then sewed it to the felt.
 
The finished purse.

With the raw fleece surface, it'd be like carrying around a little lamb :-)

Vivian-A bit less 'squirmy', I think!:)

Its gorgeous Heather! Using the suede side out for the strap was a good idea, it's just the right touch for this bag
