Create a work of art and use it as a purse! This tutorial shows you how to machine needle felt scrumptious silk fabrics and trimmings into luscious cloth. Step by step directions show you how to make the purse and create a beaded handle.
The directions in this tutorial are accompanied by color photographs and illustrations, making this project very easy to do! Perfect for gifts!
Materials suggested are: Silk velvet, silk organza, silk dupioni, silk taffeta, silk chiffon, ribbon yarn, curly wool roving, decorative yarn and silk ribbon.
Please note: This project is best created using a needle felting machine. While the needle felting part of the purse may also be done using a hand-held needle felting tool, it is much easier and faster to use a needle felting machine such as Baby Lock's Embellisher.
The 3D flower design is from the Flower Brooch
collection. The Christmas purse is also embellished with silk velvet holly leaves from the Winter Blooms
collection. Other 3D flower designs that would work great for this purse can be found in the Summer Blooms
and Spring Blooms
