Kelpie's Tears, Elizabethan Jacket & Briodag designs by Alice & Jade Starmore

The Mermaid's Purse

Once you have tried out some Buttons and Beads and got to grips with felting you will be ready for a larger project. With the Mermaid's Purse you can try out felting a knitted piece on a larger scale. I have provided a PDF of the full pattern instructions for the Mermaid's Purse. This project will give you insight into knitting, felting and embroidery for both costume and design. You can follow on with further development of embroidery and felting technique in the Mermaid's Purse Development page.
