My first fulled wool project. A very fine Italian Wool Sweater that I picked up at Goodwill. Both layers together come to between a quarter of an inch and half an inch. I found out why thimbles are important. The difficulty of working with thick layers makes this not as polished/finished as I would like. This is my first time using grommets and I love them and will probably use them again.

That is really cute.  I need to try the hand stitch technique (don't know what it is called) that you did around the top.  I like the way it looks.  And the way you attached the handles...I love that technique.

Ooh, I love the idea of using grommets on a felted purse.  Is the fabric velveteen?
