The journey of the free form felted purse continues

Here's an update on the free form purse.... I dyed some more wool yarn using food coloring and vinegar. It is a bit more "turquoise" than the main body color, but not bad. I think once I dye some more yarn in red, orange and yellows and crochet some coral to put on, it should look ok. The color contrast didn't show up as well in pics as I'd hoped:)
Here's a close up.
To finish off, I want to add a coral/seaweed? handle and maybe a few shells / beads in the "sand"....
hmmmmm..... A pocket or 2 might be nice as well, then a lining that will show through the holes and enhance the look. More as the journey continues...
