I wet felted the body of the bag using pirate type female colours, red, pink, purple and of course glitter (I know, not piratey, but so fancy! :D - SO. MUCH. GLITTER! ). This involved working the loose wool fibres with hot water and soap until they bond and then rolling it hundreds of times, followed by throwing it around! The front flap has knots I have tied in the wool.
This bag is quite hairy because of the Texel wool that I used, but I also added corriedale, merino, sari silk and viscose (don't forget the glitter! :D).
Once this had dried, I sewed in some soft touch skull fabric, very pretty, attached an awesome skull button that caught my eye the other day. Finally, I embroidered a simple treasure map on the front flap - this is definitely unique! Ha ha. Fun and funky.
Dimensions - laid flat the bag is 33cm wide by 23cm high and the strap is 109cm long.
Aftercare - pull the lining away from the wool before washing in cool water and gentle soap. The colours in the wool may run. Don't wring, leave in the desired shape to dry and of course, most importantly enjoy your pretty pirate purse!
UK buyers - I will send Royal Mail 1st class. I aim to despatch on the same day as your order :)
I bought the skull button while looking for fabric and it just went from there...
