New Old Purse

I made this purse about two years ago but was never happy with it. You know how sometimes you work on something and put all of your concentration on it, thinking that this is the path? Well, that is what I had did with this purse. I liked the grey and the counter point of the red underneath. But as a usable purse, it just didn't make me happy.
Just last weekend I understood how I was going to correct it. I put a flex opening in the top. It gathered the top nicely and it all came together. Now, for me it works!
This is grey felt with white felt on the inside and with red trim. The straps are satin that I fringed.

What a great winter bag this is. I think you should write a book on how to make beautiful purses!

I loved this purse when you first made it and now it really seems perfect. I love felt.
I like Phyllis' idea about writing a book!

I think a book not so much on 'how to' but mostly showcasing your purses with commentary.
