I've made bags with leftover yarn before, but this one is small, cute and probably took less than a skein of yarn - albeit spread across four different colors. This pattern won't work as a project bag, but it could be a cute small purse, or even an accessory bag to hold crochet hooks, scissors, gauge, stitch markers, etc. As with my other "leftover bags" When I started this project I had less than one skein of four different colors of the same yarn weight and fiber content (all Peruvian Highland wool, which felts beautifully). It was crocheted in two pieces (front, back and flap of the body as one piece, and the sides and strap as another), switching yarn colors pretty randomly, and then wet felted lightly to make a denser fabric. Without a lining or handles to fuss with, this is a really simple project that only requires basic crochet and felting skills. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY beginner with basic crochet skills. you will learn wet felting GAUGE 14 stitches and 11 rows hdc = 4 x 4 inch square. Felted = 3 x 3 1/2 inch square.

Recommended with this pattern

  • Approximately 1-2 skeins (100 gram) worsted weight wool - I used all Cascade 220.
  • If you have more or less yarn, you can simply make the bag larger or smaller. The pattern is easy to adapt.
  • one magnetic snap closure, one decorative button. I used a snap from Clover Bag's & totes accessories line, but you may find other brands at your local yarn, fabric or craft store.
