Pattern Description:

The Nashville Bag is the perfect little bag to go with your little black dress, sundress, or even a pair of jeans.

The Nashville Bag is fun to knit and it is amazing to see it transform from an oddly shaped piece of knitting into a beautiful ruffled purse after a few minutes in the washing machine! This purse is great in a basic go-to color like charcoal gray or make one in a fun bright color to go with a special outfit. I hope you enjoy creating yours?

Pattern includes lots of pictures and complete instructions for felting your knitted bag in the washing machine to turn it into a beautiful felt bag.

Your pattern purchase includes a free tutorial on how to line your bag with fabric. Just send me an email (my email is in the pattern) and I will send you the pdf file!
