This green Harris Tweed coin purse features a proud Highland cow with distinctive flowing locks, carefully stitched onto the front.
An ideal gift for a highland cow lover, or perhaps the perfect coin purse for yourself to remember a holiday in Scotland or a special memory. The coin purse has a patterned cotton lining with a zip closure, so is sure to keep the items inside clean, safe and secure.
To make the stitched design, I first draw the highland cow and cut the different colours from pieces of felt. I then stitch the intricate details using free motion embroidery. This technique is like drawing with a sewing machine - every line is stitched by eye which means each design is slightly different and you are buying an original, unique piece each time.
The Harris Tweed I use to make the coin purse is bought directly from a weaver in Luskentyre on the Isle of Harris in Scotland. The earthy green colour of the cloth is a lovely mix of dark green with flecks of brown running through it.
The coin purse measures approximately 11.5 x 10.5 cm, and the official Harris Tweed orb label is sewn on the back.
Harris Tweed is made from 100% British wool, and dry cleaning is recommended.
