It Felt Like This! And It SOLD instantly!

Dream Felt II Clutch


Dream Felt II Clutch

And it's a really unusual bag, topped off with a fabulous vintage earring transformed into a pin that picks up many of the colors of the felt.

The most interesting thing about this bag is that it was a MISTAKE! I was aiming for another seamless bag, but I screwed up somewhere in the process and the seams didn't felt. That left me with two different size pieces of wool fabric to use in some way. It came a bag as the pieces were folded up, sewn at the seams (Thanks, Ginny!), creating several "slots" inside the bag, ending up as this unique creation that is truly more in keeping with my love of "freeform."
