Felted Purse-a-holic

I've never felted a purse before, but I found out how fun it is!

I used the Retro Bag by Shelly pattern, it was easy and well written. I did make it larger.

I used a purse zipper, that I found at JoAnns, it is convenient. Two zips that close in the center.

My next felted bag is the Kelly Bag Pattern, available in a free PDF here, from JCasa Handmade, check out her other patterns! She blogs here.

I had some leftover Malabrigo yarn, and found some multicolor to match it. It looks camo here, but I didn't realize that until I started knitting. This pattern looks adorable and fast. Can't wait to see the results.

Until later, check out some felted bag patterns and try one!!

Here is a load of free felted patterns of all kinds, at Knittychick!

May your needles fly as fast as Dragonflies....

  1. Wow! That bag looks great! you do great work!

    I've never had much luck making felted bags, myself. They just don't turn out for me. Felted hats are more my thing.

  2. Your new bag looks great! I especially love the lining with all those fab pockets!

    And I need to go talk to Kathleen. I have yet to make a felted hat. How do you size it to your head?

  3. What a cute bag. Good idea to line the bag.
