"Grow" Crochet and Fulled Purse
The purse looks fabulous on the bear,
pretty good on me...if only I was a bit taller or had a longer coat on!!

An open view showing the hand stitched cotton lining, leaf print.
Neatly blind stitched to the inside, tacked at the bottom


Notice how the strap grows out of the orange,
and flares out and is stitched onto the body of the purse at the left, with orange and gray contrasting. .

This is a fabulous shoulder bag that I freeform crocheted and fulled (felted) in the washing machine. The orange yarn is my own handspun, hand dyed Wensleydale wool, with globs of tencel and metallic copper bits of yarn here and there. The gray is a slightly heathered looking 100% wool yarn. Throughout the gray in both the body of the purse and the strap, I carried along bits and pieces of a grassy and wild synthetic yarn. I sewed the lining by hand from 100% cotton quilting fabric in a light green on green leaf print, and blind stitched it neatly into the purse to protect the inside, and hold all your valuables in safely. This is a great shoulder bag with a long strap!
