This is a simple felted bag that is knit flat. An off center seam closes the front. It is knit in one piece except for the strap. The color changes are done by cutting one of the 2 yarns and adding another. the colors change gradually this way. I bought some brown sheep nature spun mill ends in odd colors and overdyed them. This is not necessary. In the green bag shown, I added more inches to the flap and attached the straps along the top edge of bag instead of further down the sides.

I grew up surrounded by a family that appreciates art and crafts. I first learned to sew. Then embroider. Then, reluctantly, knitting. I knit every day. and it has been 30 years. I also am a batik on silk artist. Something I have been playing with for over 20 years. And while I have never taken a class I have invented my own personal style.
