"Bunny & Gumdrops" Hooked Purse

"Bunny and Gumdrop" hooked purse is 12" x 12.5" and lined with navy calico with a small creamed colored pin dot.  This was a great project to use lots of those very small amounts of left over hand dyed wools.  The bunny is hooked with a kinky over spun natural gray/brown wool yarn with the hooking pulled high for the tail....very slow process and I'm not sure I like the idea of doing a whole lot of hooking with yarns!  This purse has plastic rings and the leather strap I have on the yellow purse (above) is moved from one purse to another when I want to carry a different one.  This was actually the first purse I ever tried putting together using hooked rug pieces and it was quite a learning experience.
