This classic black/grey herringbone Harris Tweed coin purse features an elegant squirrel with distinctive red locks, carefully stitched onto the front.
Also available in deep green Harris tweed which has flecks of brown running through it, just click on the colour options.
An ideal gift for a squirrel 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 squirrel 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 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% wool, and dry cleaning is recommended.
