Pattern Description:

Design by Pipp?s Purses

?Felted Doctor?s Bag - Satchel?

This one is great for all those beautiful buttons out there:)

The bag is designed to sit upright on its base. I hate it when my purse tips over:)

It is an advanced beginner level pattern?you will use strait needles for the entire project. Some simple seaming is required and I have written a full set of instructions with an illustration on how to get the most professional look possible. There is also a stitch guide provided. AND you can always contact me via email if you need any extra help:)

The main model in this listing was knit using random stripes and I just love the results. Each color was knit for 2 rows. I chose to make the side?s stripes NOT match the front panels so that you could see how it is put together. It is very simple to make your stripes match up if you wish as shown in my denim blue and brown model.

The pattern provides you with easy to follow step by step instructions to create the basic shape. YOU WILL DECIDE ON what color(s) you want to work with and the extra embellishments (for example: stripe details and buttons).

You will use size 10.5 needles and 650 yards of worsted weight wool.

The U- shaped handles are easy to on ebay and at most craft stores:)

7?h (not including the handles) x 11.5?w x 5?d


12 stitches and 18 rows = 4 inches in Stockinette stitch
