B4 Bags
I made these bags from the B4 Pattern which I purchased here:

http://www.bloomoon.com/b4.html

I have made felted bags before, but this pattern was worth purchasing due to the instructions on the bobbles, the beading, and the construction of the handles. It has become my favorite felted bag pattern.

The mainly pink one is Plymouth Galway Chunky

The other bag is from Lamb's Pride Bulky.

All the buttons came from WALMART, and the beads were found at Michael's. Bigger beads worked better, as the pink bag shows. The slightly smaller beads in the purple, pink and green bag were kind of buried during the felting process.

Cat's Mother, the bobbles were EASY, and due to the felting, the little hole that forms beside each bobble magically disappears. It's like increasing 5 times in 1 stitch. The pattern tells you how it's done.
Kris, the beads are knitted in (I used Pony Beads from Michaels) and the buttons are sewn on after it's felted and dry. It's quite a quick pattern to finish.
