This is the purse for my alterego Super PomPon Girl, who saves the world without losing style!  Grin
(yes, I'm an idiot, I know it).

I remembered to sew an inside pocket this time, but forgot the velcro closure, which I think was a good idea since the top is wide open. The bag, a basic "jordy", is made from all vintage material: the exterior is wool and felt and again wool for the pom, the lining is from a tablecloth, I guess around 1975-78 (it was my mother's).

What do you think about it? I'm asking for improvement, so please feel free to tell me anything you think I could do better or different!  Smiley

Thanks!!  Cheesy
I have a thing for poms, I've made cuffs, collars and "toys" with them, and in the process of making bags, purses and everything with them.  I'm obsessed.

woot. very stylish. my only suggestion is to use interfacing next time to stiffen the purse when it is on you shoulder. it eliminates that "saggy" look....unless of course that's what you were going for in which case I'll hush up.  Grin

Thanks again!
Iris, you're right, although I don't like too much "rigid" (stiff?) bags, I think I should try a light interfacing when fabric is such soft as wool, especially with this kind of shape. We'll see for the next one Smiley
