I met a woman the other day who had made this purse. She gave me permission to put the picture and her name on my blog.
To make it, she had laid strips of torn fabric on top of some fusible web (overlapped on one edge sort of like putting siding on a house), and then ironed and fused them down. Then she made the purse out of that. The purse had some nice texture because of the ravelldy edges sticking down.
Her name is Sofia Lung, of Gutsy Designs. She said she has some other stuff she has made on her blog peterandsofialung.blogspot.com
