This is the finished purse. I measured it for the curious folks out there...it's 10" x 10" (not including the handles). I absolutely love it. I shaved the fuzz off and I think the colors are "sharper". I hope my friend likes it. If not, I'll take it back and use it myself. It is taking much longer to dry than the other purses I made. I think it's because the purse is thin.
My little sister made fun of the name so if you have any ideas on a new name, let me know. It's the end of the school year and I must admit, I can't think of anything snappy right now.
On another note, I got a wonderful gift from a student's mom today (not even my student, just a fabulous family!). A bag full of raw wool. It has already been cleaned and combed. All I need to do is dye it and use it. I plan on making balls and turning it into another purse. I am thinking of using kool-aid to color the wool. Suggestions?
