Last night I found in my yarn stash 4 skeins of Noro Kureyon. So I went on the hunt to find a felted bag pattern to knit when I found this one.

Jayne's AP Bag (http://seejayneknit.blogspot.com/2007/01/free-pattern-jaynes-ap-bag.html).

I LOVE this bag! It's so hot! I cast on this morning in Kureyon #51, putting my other 2 projects on hold because I'm so nuts about this bag. I Can't wait till it's finished.

Anyway... thought you other felted bag nuts would like the heads up.

filing that one away for later...

I'm always on the hunt for a new purse, but I'm addicted to stripes. If only I hadn't placed a yarn order last night. I'll have to sneak yarn for this one into my next purchase...

I love felted purses and I absolutely love this one. I have printed the directions, now need to find time to do this with all my other projects. Let me know if this is a fast project.

This is the reason why I think I haven't been bitten by the "knitted purse bug" too much yet, because I'd like something I can use pretty frequently. This purse might just be the "cure" for that for me....! :teehee:

I've gotten a lot done so far, and I'm almost to the top shaping and flap. I can't decide if I want to use a leather handle or a knitted handle though... I think I'm leaning towards knitted icord. :??

I seen that a few days ago and really liked it.. only thing is I don't ever use the bags I knit... :thinking: I really do like it though...

I've tried numerous time to see that bag but it won't let me, Says its in error.

I also have knit some really nice bags...but I end up using them as tote bags or don't use them at all. I love knitting them. But I guess I still prefer my leather handbags. :shrug:

I think there's a problem with the site. I remember pulling up this pattern when Silver first created this topic. Perhaps it will work tomorrow?

My bag is felting as I type!

I decided on a knit i cord handle and found these cool rings for hardware (found them on an old purse in my purse stash). The two rings in front do not have clips or anything, they're merely weights so the flap stays down. I didn't want to have to fumble with a latch when reaching in my bag.

But I think that's the best part of this pattern... you can customize the closure and handle to whatever you like... or use whatever you have!

Anyway, here's the pre-felting photos. Click on them for the full size.

My bag is finished! Turned out very nicely, good size, but still small n cute. It'll work great with a little Purseket inside. I think I actually found a felted bag pattern that I will use!

The colors are darker than they look here, due to the flash.
