Does anyone know where I could find the bronte bag pattern? Here's a blog post with a pic of it (first 2 pics)

The link worked for me.

From reading thru the blog, it sounds like the blogger is the designer of the bags. I don't see a link to that pattern, or a reference where to buy the completed bags. Have you tried to contact her thru her blog? You might be able to get more info that way.

The bags look like variations on the Booga Bag. I think if you started the booga, then did a few increase rows as you moved up the body of the bag, and then shaped it after felting as it dried, you could get something quite similar.

Thanks Jill. I did post on the blog, but not sure if she'll respond. I didnt' find a place where I could email her.

Hmmm, increase on a booga, huh? I'm pretty new, so I'll have to wait to tackle that I think. I'm not sure I'm up to making my own pattern yet :) But I will definately keep that in mind and do in the future.

Look thru the bags here, you might find a similar shaped bag.

Also just google 'felted knit tote pattern' or 'bag' and see what you get.

The handles look like it's just 2 pieces of i-cord twisted around each other, so as long as you find the bag the right shape, you can easily change the handles.
