"After Gee's Bend" Pieced Felt Purse- Part 2 of ?

Adding a layer of green wool to side one...


                                                 ...and wetting the project out.



                                             After flipping the project to side two...



                      ...a layer of orangey-red wool is applied to the pre-felt surface.



                                            One of the base flaps is flipped up...



                               ...and additional wool is added to the purse bottom.

                              
                                                           Along the way...

                          ...loops (for the strap) are affixed to the top of the bag...



                                           ...and more fiber is added to each side.


                                                    
                                              Next time: pockets are fashioned...

                                                     ...and the felting is begun!

I have a sneaking feeling, that as time goes on, and you learn and learn more, gain more experience and confidence, you will be doing more difficult pieces, fanciful pieces, and amazing pieces. Wait! You do that already!!! :)
