I just finished this bag for a swap that I am involved in. Now I have to make another one for me! I love this bag, but the beading took me almost as long to do as the entire bag! You really can't see the beading on the leaves but its there also.  The colors look different inside and out but I still think it is super pretty.
here is a link to the before felting photo. I used brown sheep lamb's pride bulky for the purse and worsted weight for the light pink flower and leaves (2 strands of different greens) , and some pretty varigated pink yarn from my stash (lost the yarn label). The ruler is an USA school style ruler, 12 inches across.

Great job!  Do you have a pre-felted shot?  I'm curious how big it was before you felted it.

Gorgeous!  I love the varied hues on the petals!  Do you mind sharing which yarn you used for the flowers?  Thanks!
