View Full Version : Making a felted purse and want to do a ruffled edge..

03-14-2006, 10:28 PM
Does anyone know where I can find a pattern to incorporate a ruffled edge into my purse? I'm wanting to add the ruffle to the top part and then add a pretty felted flower. I'm trying to do a really cute, sassy purse for myself (finally, something for me..lol)

:happydance: THX!

I just knitted this bag with a ruffle and flower. You c/o number of sts x 2 and I knitted for 3". Then I attached the ruffle on the bag like you would for the sole of fiber trends felted clogs. You hold both needles from the ruffle and bag in left hand and use one of the right needles to knit one st from the bag and one st from the ruffle together. I hope this makes sense, it is hard to explain.

So basically, I would do the ruffle separately and then knit it on when it's done? Hmm, I may be able to do that. And I understand the three needle bind off. I did one the other day. I'm only a quarter of the way through the body of my purse, so I have a day or two before I'll do a ruffle. I may be back to ask more questions..lol

That's Right! Knit the ruffle separately and then knit it onto the purse. If you have any questions, please e-mail.

Good Luck :D

This was my first post ever. I've edited this post so the link will work, now that I've figured out more about how these forums work.

I love knitwit's bag - it is really cute. I was also looking for different knitted bags and ran across another ruffled handbag pattern called "Romantic Ruffles" and thought I'd post it here for others who may be looking at ruffled choices. The pattern includes a picture of the finished bag. The link is below, it is an Adobe Acrobat file so you'll need the free Adobe Reader download to view and/or print it.
