Coin Purses and Plaid

Coin Purses and Plaid

I made some of my recent nuno felt pieces into coin purses. If you saw my last blog post, you might recognise this first one from the photo where it was just two cut out pieces:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI can’t remember if I ever showed this next purse after I sewed it up. You might remember it started out as a nuno ‘sample’ – I usually make them big enough to turn into coin purses if I like the way the fabric felts:

I think I’m just out of date with everything I’ve made! No one uses cameras now because phones have them, so no use for camera cases. Same thing with diaries, who needs a diary or notebook when phones have organisers and memo apps etc. And I think I’m the last person to still use actual money, and even debit cards, but that means you get to see the purses I made last week 🙂 This is the blue flowery nuno one (obviously!).

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI don’t think I blogged about the felt piece I made these next two purses from, though I do remember sharing it on the forum. I wove lots of different strips of fabrics for an interesting nuno piece with lots of texture and contrast. You can see the piece here. This is the first purse:


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAnd the second one is very similar:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe felt was just the right size to cut the purses out and allow me to use both top and bottom  natural edges. This is the back:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAnd the last one is one of my favourites, made from a sunflower scarf nuno felted onto Merino. This is the front:
