This is the last of three handbags made from the same pattern.
This one is also made of felt.
The Pattern is available here.
I joined all the panels of the felt handbag with a sewing machine and gave it a zigzag stitch all around the edges, just to make it a bit stronger.
(The hand stitches are just there for decoration .)
The shoulder band/string is a few strings of wool, braided together.
I sewed the leaves and petals one by one – giving each a few hand stitches.
Hand stitches give this fresh flower felt handbag a truly “handmade” look
Lastly I joined the braided shoulder strings with the handbag by hand and finish everything with hand stitches.
This is not your average everyday handbag – but definitely a fresh felt flower bag for a special occasion matching a special outfit.
