Mamma's got a Brand New Bag

This is the purse I made this weekend.
The body is grey felted wool. The lining is cotton in a vintage inspired print, from Hancock Fabrics. The jackalope appliqué is white wool felt. There is white cotton piping around the edges of the bag, and on the strap detail.

I am a sucker for any kind of detail like piping, on bags, shirts, skirts, whatever.... but I don't always have the patience to do a lot of detail work on something like a piece of clothing that has to also be fitted. That is the beauty of making purses, they can be whatever size they end up being.

Tomorrow I will have more detailed instructions on the construction of this purse.
