I found this piece of Pendleton wool a couple years ago and wanted to make a purse out of it.
Searching around I found this bag pattern from byannie.com. I like to use Texture magic so ordered the pattern.
I had a piece of fine leather so I cut out the flap 30% larger then the pattern sewed batting and texture magic to it and using steam shrank the texture magic giving this puffy effect. I then sewed beads at each intersection
I know this doesn't look like the same fabric but it is all the same piece. Under the flap is a pocket I sewed on with beads and using floss went around the pocket with the (my favorite) Portuguese knot stitch.
Had to bead the hands!
