Pieced Nuno Pre-Felt Purses- Part 5

Trimming the pieced pre-felts to the size of the resist.


                             Sandwiching the foam between two pieces of pre-felt...

                                             ...(with the silk toward the 'inside')...



                                         ...and stitching the pieced sides together.



                                       Adding a third pre-felt piece at the bottom...

                                                    ...and stitching it into place.



                    Fashioning hanging loops from sections of leftover nuno pre-felt...



                                         ...and sewing them to the top of the bag.



                       Covering side one of the project with layers of wool from a batt...



                                                         ...and wetting it out.



                                           Covering the hanging loops with fiber...



                                            ...and flipping the purse to side two.



                                           Next time: coping with the flanged flap.
