Felted a bunch of thrift-store sweaters and made this small purse from a sleeve. The pieced strap looks kind of like a boa made from sock monkeys, but I like its character. (Lining, not shown, is tan linen.)



The button didn't originally look disheveled enough to go on this purse, but 5 seconds with an emery board gave it that lived-in look.



Frankie thanks you for looking!

P.S. Although I had all this felt to make purses for my cousins, I hadn't thought of making one for myself. (In college, my circle of friends disdained purses in favor of backpacks, and 15 years later I still took a completely utilitarian view.) Then a Bad Samaritan stole my old purse when I wasn't looking, thus indirectly ushering me into a new realm of craftiness.

Dammit, Jim, I'm a crafter, not a photographer!
