Design a Purse

Here's where you get to put together the purse with the style and function you want!  Steps 1 through 3 below will guide you through the process of choosing or designing your unique purse.  Choose from three purse styles described below in Step 1 (each style is available in three sizes).  Determine which one you want, and then click on Step 2 to view photos of purses in many colors and patterns.  You may choose colors from those photos, or you may inquire about other color options.  Step 3 is where you email me with your selections and/or ideas.  We can correspond and create the exact combination of colors and details for your unique purse!  If you are choosing a gift, I am also happy to help with your selection.


Step 1:  Choose from three distinctive purse styles shown and described below.   For a description of the quality and features of wool felted purses, and to learn about how they are knitted and felted, I invite you to click on these links:  about the purse collection and the felting process.
