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 email@example.com 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.
