A few days ago, I posted a picture of my felted bag-in-progress here. I had just started crocheting the base or body of the bag. Here is the finished project:
I finished crocheting the bag, then I whip-stitched the sides together. next I crocheted the handle and whip-stitched the edges to get a round cord-like length of crochet cording and attached them to the bag.
The felting process was next. I also had crocheted a piece of the purple and green yarn so I could make a felted flower for the embellishment. Size-wise, I need to make the felted flower just a tad smaller for the proportion to work.
Last, I added a stamped, colored and beaded shink plastic pin. This is a great way to personalize the bag.
I learned quite a bit from this project. My next one will be larger and in a different shape. What I found interesting was how the wool yarn felted up- it was much different from the yarn used in the project- as shown in the photo.
