The Wayfarer Purse in Harris Tweed


I created a couple of new purses made from Harris Tweed wool and will be adding them to my shop this afternoon. The purse above is made from a barleycorn weave in blue, gray, brown/red and cream. I added a leafed branch applique in blue that coordinates beautifully with the tones in the purse. I purchased this luxury cloth at my local fabric shop in NYC and it was the most I ever spent on a textile. But I think it was worth every penny!

Oh, beautiful, the blue applique looks lovey against the tweed! I wonder if you've purchased any tartan - plaid wool - to go with this tweed, it is an amazing colour mix...
