Nuno-Felted Clutches

Designed and handcrafted by Kim Buchheit.
Over the weekend I made these fun little nuno-felted clutches to carry art supplies, make-up, or other goodies in style. These purses were handcrafted of merino wool and silk, with no-sew construction. Magnetic clasps and felted flowers are the finishing touches. (Felting tip: For this project, I used an inexpensive resist material that you can pick up at the grocery store: freezer paper! It works great and you can use your sewing machine to create larger resists as needed.)

Very cute. What type of magnets do you use, I got some recently and read the small print...not to be used anywhere near people with pace-makers!
