Italian Fringe Felted Purse Pattern and Hardware Kit

Only 1 Kit Left!


The dove gray leather fringe is made from Italian leather soft and supple as a horse's nose. Punched at regular intervals, it is easy to apply to the top of your bag with either double-capped rivets or cabochon rivets.

The bag closes with an ingenious use of the Amazing snap closure. Clip beautiful USA-made leather handles to the handle brackets on each side of the bag and you can start filling it with all your favorite things. Or use it as the coolest knitting bag around. Simple and fast to knit, the finishing is pretty easy, too. What makes this bag special, and will make some ladies dash across busy streets to ask you about it, is the fabulous hardware and handle and the fabulous leather fringe!
