Wool - my favourite material

I'm planning to make a new handbag out of this wool. I love the colours. I'm basing the design on my previous Mulberry bag, which I loved. I considered buying ready-made leather handles to attach - and I might still - but in the meantime I bought some plastic tubing, to cover in material and make my own handles. I also bought bag feet. I like that kind of stuff. 
Might make a bag out of this too. I could've bought half metres of all the wool/tweed in the shop - lovely combinations of colours, checks, herringbone, dogs tooth, etc.
This book has proved very useful.
