Felted Black and Gray Purse with Mirror Image Tree


  • I wanted to try my Intarsia carriage on the Bulky Brother so I made this black and gray purse. I needle felted the tree in the opposite color as the background color. I used four metal grommets to hang the purse handle. The purse handle is 24 inches long and nice for an over the shoulder purse. I used a metal closure in silver. The bottom is slightly wider than the top. When I started the bottom I did half in black and gray and the other half in gray and black since the bottom becomes the front and back. However I did not allow for this on the top. I meant to fold down the tops for the closure but then the squares would not be the same. That is why I made grommets and used a handle. I knitted a seperate piece of felted fabric for the back of the clasp so it does not show on the outside.DSC00087 The tree roots look like Bullwinkle’s horns. LOL!!!
  • It is for sale in my Etsy store. I made this over a week ago but have been so busy selling and running to the post office. Will be glad when the holidays are over. 🙂DSC00082

    • Thank you Lynne. I am having fun doing felting and I know more people would like to see things done on the passap. I will get back to that but thank you so much for the feedback. 🙂
