New Handbag

After I finished my last wooly flower project, my hands were anxious to start another wool project. I have had this McCalls handbag pattern for a few years, and I decided this was the perfect project to do before I got into Christmas projects.

The handbag is an overdyed blue wool, with wool flowers. I had the perfect handles I had painted the same red as the flowers. I went to put them on, and they were too big, 12" instead of the 7" I needed. So had to go find some other ones the right size. I guess I will have to make another bag to fit those handles now!

The purse is fabulous! I've never worked much with wool, but I do have some pieces I could play with. I may have to try that. You can make quite a bag for the 12" handles. Isn't it amazing how one project leads to another? =)
