Flat Felt and Leather Purse- Part 8 of 8

The finished purse with small leather flap.


                                     During felting, the rayon fabric virtually melted...

                                          ...into the wool roving and pre-felt bits. 



                                            The area of the bag under the flap...

                                    ...shows off the print of the original fabric best.



                                           A shot of the purse interior with pocket.



                                               All four of the finished purses...



                                     ...were made as 'flat felt' with sewn-on leather...



                                      ...yet each has its own unique style!

They are very different, aren't they! Just goes to show how varied are the results obtainable from one basic technique!

So fabulous. I have not done any felting in ages and your projects are always so inspiring. I have been doing too much reading recently, i really should do some creating.

Wow - they all look great! What do you plan to do with them? Will they be for sale? My favourite is the last one, especially the orangey-red side with he blue "olives".
