How to Make a Cute Felted Purse This Weekend

+ enlarge

I’ve been playing with wet felting again, and pulled out this pattern I created a while back.

It’s easy to do. The basic bag pattern is here.

Add your own touches like the v-dip in the front and back.

(You can even cut into the bag, when part way done, and then continue the felting process.)

I felted it in the washing machine three times to get it tightly felted, measuring approximately 5 by 7 inches when completed. When still damp, stuff the bag with pieces of old towels to get the shape desired, and let air dry completely.

When dried, I took some roving and needle felted some circles of color here and there!

Felting is very forgiving and hides any errors in your knitting!
