I need a felted bag pattern that is quick easy and fun. The type of wool yarn that i have is: Lamb's Pride Worsted [(85%Wool/15%Mohair)190 yards] and it wouldnt be a purse without some fuzzy yarn (like a teenage pattern) the fuzzy yarn that i have is: Fun fur Prints[(100%Polyester)57 yards] and i dont have any circular needles all i have is a size 9 needle and size 17 needles (sorry for sounding so demanding but i need it before september when i go back to school)

Thanks in advance!!

Here's a link to knitting-warehouse.com with a pair of clover size 11 16" circs for less than $7; I've recently found this place and now buy all of my needles here. Of course, if you don't like bamboo, they have several different types

I'm currently using Lambs Pride Worsted for another of the Not So Vintage Bubble Bags (in the book Pursenalities)...you must double this yarn for the felted bags according to the owner at the lys.

I have the Knit One Felt Two book and that has a lunch bag style tote that calls for 85% wool 15% mohair. They used Brown Sheep in a limeade and hot pink color but of course the color choice is your. I actually want to try this bag, it has a loop for closing and handles for over the shoulder or I suppose you could do them short too. I thought it was cute. I got the book at B&N. :thumbsup:

Joyce made the Not-So-Vintage one. pics in her blog thread. super cute :inlove:! I love the greeeeen, and the fur makes it sassy :heart:!

there's also couple of pics in my blog thread of the Vintage one.
I make mine wrong tho - actual pattern result will look different.

I don't know how easy or quick this bag is, but I always thought it was cute.

I did these. I have chains to hang on them yet and the silver one i will add a tassel and beads. The purple one is for my 12 year old neice and is knitted but not felted yet. These are easy, can be done in one evening.

I just knitted the Fulled Lopi Tote (Amy's free patterns). I whipped it out in about 3 sittings. I used Lamb's Pride. It worked out great (mostly). You do need circs to do it though.

Good luck!

Hi InterNette

Those purses are so adorable! Thank you for posting the pic. I've also heard people talking about bubble purses and had no idea of what they looked like. I think I'm going to make some for my nieces also!

Thank you.
