"Purse-travaganza"! Part 2 of ?

Changing fiber colors (to orange!)...

...for side two.


                                                   Preparing hanging loops...



                                                       ...and attaching them...  



                                                ...to the top edge of the bag...



                           ...and covering both sides with additional layers of roving.



                                     After all of the wool layers have been applied...



                                             ...a resist is cut from bubble wrap... 

                                      ...and covered with pieces of nuno-pre-felt...


                              
                                                     ...and layers of roving...

                                                ...to form an internal pocket.



                                                     Mid-way through felting...



                                                      ...the resist is removed...
   

                          ...and the purse is turned right-side out for further felting.



                                                  Next time: the finished bag.
