Wool Wallets

Yesterday at guild, one of the women had a beautiful kit to organize her wool.  It almost looked like a cosmetic case.  It was neat because it used muslin pages to separate the cut wool and it attached to a pretty outer shell that formed a handled purse.  I have seen women organize their wool using similar cloth leaves or even papertowel leaves, but nothing as pretty as these.  I decided that this was a great way to organize my strips and I wanted to order one.  The creator's name is Maureen Boswell and she calls her creations Woolie Pullie Purses.  I don't have a photo of her purse and I can't find any information about them on the internet.  Her business card has her contact information maureenboswell@bellsouth.net if you are interested in ordering one.

When I got home and started to look at my wool, I realized that the purse I saw was too large for my strips and their weren't enough muslin leaves to hold my 8 gradations and my dapple dye and my textures.  I needed something tinier and with more pages.  So I had a fun time last night getting out some embroidery floss and bits of felt and trying to put together a little wool wallet that might serve a similar function.  Here is what I came up with.
