Felted Blue Handbag

June 1, 2008 7 comments

I have simply fell in love with felting bags. Here is my latest bag which is a blue handbag with variegated wool yarn for the flap trim and the strap. I crocheted this handbag using 100% wool and felted it an extra long time as I wanted my final product to be very tight. This easy pattern works up very quickly and makes for a fun felted project.

As always, below is the free bag pattern so you too can create this cute little handbag. Enjoy!
