This Japanese-made purse kit, available at purlsoho.com, includes a vintage-style purse frame and the necessary templates.
The kit's accompanying instructions are in Japanese, but the store's blog has a detailed tutorial with plenty of helpful photos on how to make the smaller coin purse. The how-to is the same for the larger purse we made, although you'll want a half yard each of the lining fabric and the wool-woven fabric.
In order to needle-felt the purse, there is one adjustment: In the "Cutting" section of the tutorial, after you've cut out the paper pieces and the lining pieces, don't cut out the two outer-fabric pieces. Wait until after you needle-felt the design to cut out these pieces, as the wool-woven fabric may stretch and change size during the needle-felting process.
Follow these instructions for tracing, needle-felting, and cutting the outer fabric:
