Patty's purse

This is a felted purse I made for my sister-in-law, Patricia, for Christmas 2005. I think I used this fuscia Cascade wool (Color #132) that I bought on Ebay. The pattern is "Dragonfly Trim Felted Bag" from Crystal Palace Yarns, but I didn't use Dragonfly trim. Instead, to fit my sister-in-law's fun personality, I sewed black boa feathers around the top. I also made the handle shorter than in the pattern. This whole purse is about 6 inches square. If I make it again (and I will, at least for myself), I would add a snap for closure or one of those magnetic enclosures you can bury in the felting.
