Are you a multi-faceted crafter? Then this pattern is for you. Crochet the bag components then wet-felt them to make a dense wool fabric. Finally sew the components into this roomy project bag - a perfect place to assemble all of the things you need for your next project. Here is a bag you can be happy to carry with you wherever your project takes you. With one large outside pocket and another large one inside, there is plenty of room for stitch markers, gauge, crochet hooks and all the other odds and ends we collect. I've you're like me, you will want to make several to organize all of you projects. Face it. We all have six projects going at once. With this pattern you can have as many as you like, and show off you crochet, wet felting and sewing skills. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY beginner with basic crochet, and sewing skills Will learn about changing colors and felting GAUGE 14 stitches and 11 rows hdc = 4 x 4 inch square. Felted = 3 x 3 1/2 inch square. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 17 wide x 11 tall by 5 deep. The shoulder strap drop is approximately 15 inches. SUGGESTED YARN 1800 yards of Worsted weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Cascade 220 or Knit Picks Wool of the Andes COLORWAY See above

Supplies Needed

  • 8 skeins (50 gram) worsted weight wool - Cascade 220 or Knit Picks Wool of the Andes are good choices. To achieve the striping seen in the sample, you will need two skeins each of colors A, B & C, and one skein each of Colors D & E
  • The sample was made with : A - 1 skein Cascade 220 Smoke Heather (220 yards, 100 grams) B - 1 skein Cascade 220 Dark and Medium Grey Twist (220 yards, 100 grams) C - 1 skein Cascade 220 Silver Grey (220 yards, 100 grams) D - 1 skein Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Coal (110 yards, 50 grams) E - 1 skein Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Onyx Heather (110 yards, 50 grams)
  • Despite the fact that I used two different brands of similar yard, it is best to use all the same brand and type of yarn even if different colors are used. Though many wool and wool blend yarns felt well, variables in the wool, and the yarn twist, etc. will cause different products to felt differently. Using a uniform yarn will insure that your project retains the shape you intend.
