Felt Tote Bag

Felt Tote Bag

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Make a flat piece of felt
  • Make a 3-D felt piece such as a hat or boots
  • Sew (basic level handsewing)

Pattern Description:

I wanted to try something a little different and challenging - so I started experimenting with weaving roving - this tote is the result. As an advanced pattern, it requires a little skill so I suggest you try the technique first in a sample.

A great alternative to a knitting bag, you can use it to tote just about any small(ish) craft project - look at how much I've stuffed into it!

I've found it great for taking along to fibre events - it holds enough fibre for a good long spinning session.

But wait - don't just make one as a craft bag - it looks great with jeans, and can foot it with the best!
