Basic Skills Necessary:

  • This pattern requires intermediate level skills combining crochet, wet felting and sewing.
  • Learn to change colors, work with two strands of yarn at one time, and sew with challenging fabrics such as heavyweight upholstery fabric and knits that stretch.

Pattern Description:

This bag will really catch everyone's attention, and no one will believe you made it yourself. Combining crochet, wet felting and sewing, it is the perfect project to show off as the multi-talented crafter you are. A center divider and multiple pockets can hold cash, ID, cell phone, etc. In addition to the project bag, make the accessory bag - perfect for your scissors, stitch markers, ruler or gauge, etc. And the crochet hook case will keep all your hooks organized in one place - rather than floating around the bottom of the bag or in the kitchen junk drawer.
Note: This bag is made out of both fabric and wet felted pieces. The accessory bag is also designed to be made of fabric.

Gauge:

Bag sides and center divider, and crochet hook case:
14 stitches and 11 rows hdc = 4 x 4 inch square.
Felted = 3 x 3 1/2 inch square.
Bag pockets:
18 stitches by 13 rows = 4 inch by 4 inch square.
Felted = 2 inches by 2 3/4 inches

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Bag: 15 inches wide by 11 inches tall and 6 inches deep. Shoulder strap drop is 16 inches.
  • Crochet Hook Case: 6 inches wide by 6 inches tall
  • Accessory Bag: 10 inches wide by 5 inches tall.

Materials:

  • Fabric amount - 3/4 yard of 56 to 60 inch wide
  • Select sturdy heavyweight fabric such as canvas, denim, duck or upholstery fabrics. I chose a heavy duty upholstery fabric.
  • Project bag and accessory bag together will use just under 3/4 yards. In fact I was able to find a fabric remnant for just a few dollars, so don't hesitate to root through the "less than a yard" bin at your favorite fabric shop.
  • 10 skeins fingering weight felting wool yarn to make the bag (including sides, center divider, and pockets) as well as the crochet hook case.
  • I used Knit Picks Palette (100% highland Peruvian wool 231 yards / 50 grams) in four different colors (Pimento, Garnet Heather, Salsa Heather and turmeric).

You Will Also Need:

  • Coordinating cotton, cotton wrapped polyester or invisible thread.
