What was your source for this knitting project?
Online Photo or Website
Name of website or photo Knitted Felted Tote Bag Purse by Trailbugz
What materials did you use? Felted Bag Materials: 5 Skeins of wool (1 each of 5 different colors) I used: Olive Green, Burnt Orange, Dark Red, Eggplant Purple, Golden Yellow 1 skein of beige acrylic "nubby" yarn Circular Needles size 10 (6.5mm) for the bag Single pointed needles size 10 for the handle Yarn needles or large eye hand sewing needle (I used plastic - set of 6 in a pack) Stitch markers Lining Materials: Sewing Machine 1/2 yard of courduroy or wool; for lining 3 pcs. 7" x 9" Plastic Canvas (for stability on the flat bottom) Hand sewing needle Straight Pins Pencil Yardstick Thread to match the lining fabric
What are you most proud of? The felting of the wool yarn colors, contrast nicely with the single rows of acryllic yarn (a non-felted row). It creates visual interest.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be prepared for the length of time it will take to knit this project. Although the knitting is very easy, it does take many many hours to knit the cylindrical tube. This is a great project to have on hand for cold winter nights, while sipping cocoa and watching movies!
