View Full Version : 2nd felted purse!
03-02-2006, 02:53 PM
I loved the one I made for Rebecca, so I made a slightly different one for myself! I had my doubts about the size, but I like the way it turned out. I wanted to add Bamboo handles, but here in Alaska, well Ketchikan anyways, it is hard to find what ya need! So I did the I-cord and it still looks cute! I can't wait to carry it around! The second picture is of my 6yr olds purse and mine next to each other to see how different you really can make this purse! Thanks for looking! :D

I used Karaoke yarn and it is the booga bag pattern. On the second one I cast on 34 and knitted 34 and then when I picked up stitches to knit in the round I really didn't count how many I picked up, but it worked out any way. I was supposed to make it alot taller too, but I admit to being impatient and thinking it looked tall enough. One thing I really liked is the way the I-cord sinches it together, otherwise it just sits open!
I really like the button too! It adds alot, I like buttons!

I know a woman who sells felted purses that she makes (a lot of $$$!!) and she uses old costume jewelry necklaces for handles and embellishes with funky pins. Very cool stuff.

knason, First of all your felted bags are beautiful. I tried one attempt at felting a bag and I ended up throwing it in the garbage!! I think I need to give it another try sometime. :XX:
I lived in Anchorage AK for 14 yrs. We were a military family and we loved it so much that my dh retired there. We are now back in our home state of NY. After being gone for almost 10yrs. I still miss all the :heart: MOOSE!!
