I am not much of a purse person, and besides Lilo would eat anything made of wool felt. But still, the bags over at Entropy Always Wins Blog today make me wish I liked to use purses.
Well, I have friends who do! If I can keep the felt away from Lilo, I could make some for them.
I love simple designs made with top notch materials. I also love combining nontraditional materials together. In this case I share a very simple tote design using thick felted wool along with leather handles and quilting cotton scraps. There are so many other ways to experiment with this bag design and I hope those who try it take my instructions as a jumping off point to explore their own creativity.
One finished tote including handles, measures approximately 19 inches high, 12.5 inches wide and 4 inches deep.
