Wool felt purse 羊毛氈小錢包

Two weeks ago my colleague IL showed me a 2-sided purse, for coins and keys. She asked if such 2-pocket purse can be made with wool. Indeed, a purse with zipper is a challenge for me. I said let me think if I could do it and come back to her later. I didn't forget, I must try it. Now just done this and will be given to her. I made it with my imagination from my trips to France and Holland. One side is of lavender field and little house. The other is of tulips. The ceramic button was also made by me.

Such good memories of lavender and tulip fields.

All handmade, pocket for coins is stitched with zipper and lining.

The other pocket for keys is sealed with magic tape.

This is how it's made. I put layer of wool and enclosed the whole resist. On the other side put another bubble wrap to separate the other layer of wool. Do the same steps of rubbing and rolling. After it, cut the top sides (for 2 mouths) and removed the two resists out then shape it well.

Here comes the one piece two-pocket purse. This is special for Irene. She doesn't know I've already done this. Hope she loves it.

Linking with Debbie Doo's Newbie Party.
