An Embroidered Felt Summer Treasure Purse
Boo made this felt purse to keep all her Summer treasures in... She is always collecting things on our walks, feathers, shells, special shiny stones, leaves....
We started with a felt square. Yellow is a Summery colour we thought :)
We folded it in half and cut straight down the middle.
We folded one of the pieces over leaving about a 2" gap at the top to make the "envelope fold"
Starting at the bottom of the fold for neatness sake Boo began to blanket stitch both sides of the purse.
Once both sides were stitched. I penciled in a simple embroidery design for Boo to follow.
Boo chose a button.
And finger knitted a cord so that the purse could hang around her neck and not get lost when she goes on her big treasure hunting adventures.
And here is one Matilda made a little while back...
