Painted nuno felted purse 畫畫小手袋

Just made a nuno felted purse. A piece goes with the nuno felt dress. Isn't it a perfect match?
 I like to make something of practical and multi-styled. 
The purse strap is removable.  The back is made with a "tube" to insert the strap for waist bag.

 Indeed purple is acrylic I painted on a chiffon scrap.
Then made the nuno felt with Finn wool.
I put a resist inside for the pocket and made the closure in one off.

 The other chiffon scrap I made the strap.
 Textural surface on the flap is what I wanted.
Beaded closure is for easy insert.

 A little shoulder purse with detachable strap with knots on both ends.
To make a waist purse, simply insert the strap in the back tube and tie it.

 I wanted the detachable strap as it can be used as a waist tie as well.
Enough room of the purse with inner pocket for keys, iPhone and a wallet.

 Find it a  perfect set with a nuno felt dress.
 With our Chinese New Year approaching, is it more appropriate for a little girl's red packet purse?


  1. Would be a beautiful outfit for a wedding or just a stroll on the beach

  2. it is perfection and beautifully worn by your lovely little model!

    1. Thank you Laurie. I love the sweet soul who has left to other country for good. She's my perfect model.

  3. Both the dress and the purse are simply beautiful!
    I love the closure on the purse.. and your technique of using acrylic paint on silk for nuno is very inspiring!

    1. Thank you Deborah. Acrylic paint is such good medium.

  4. It is a great success - that purple/lilac is lovely!

  5. You are so right, the purse goes perfectly with the dress and so clever of you to make it to be worn several different ways. They look like the perfect pair to wear in the warmer Spring weather. It turned out great Terrie.

    1. Thank you Susanne. It's the versatility of wool, especially nuno felt is fun and pretty to play with.
