This design sprung from the texture of the tweed. I loved the look of the stitch and thought that it would lend itself well to felting. Then I had to figure out what to make with the weight and texture of felted tweed. The purse seemed the next natural step and it matches my favorite coat!

Hi, my name is Moira Engel or "The Backloop Designs". I live on the West Coast of Canada and am married to a Tugboat Captain. So warm woolies for wet weather are essential! I don't try to be a little outside of the box but that seems to be where I always end up!
