Perfect Felted Bag 
This crochet pattern was developed to create the perfect purse or bag.  It has a nice and deep oval bottom that allows the bag sit flat on a table. The top color band is used as a guide for placing the straps, and you can’t go wrong with any color combination! A sweater/lint shaver was used to put a nice smooth finish on each piece after felting.  Instructions include photos for attaching the straps and D-rings.

Please note that superwash or washable wools will not felt properly for this pattern.

Kit includes pdf & printed pattern, 4 D-Rings and selected yarn.  Pattern purchased separately includes pdf only. For yarn winding services, click here.
