The felted tote bag I told you about recently is finished. You can find the link for a felted bag pattern I made earlier, below. The free knitting pattern works well with KnitPicks 100% wool yarn. Always heave a sigh of relief to get one of these handbags finished, more or less 30-35 hours of work. These handbags are great for carrying all year round, but especially fall, winter, and spring. This one is posted on Etsy now, the “Chicken or the egg felted cross-body tote bag.” Eclectic and one-of-a-kind!
It’s interlined with webbing, then some flannel, and lastly, the chicken and egg Michael Miller fabric. The three inner pockets for cell phone and accessories are lined with a Chinese red silk. I used a giant polished wood rooster button to close it, with extra magnetic snap inside.
You will find more photos of the chicken or egg bag on Etsy.
The tote can be worn cross-body or as a shoulder bag, strap is 26 inches.
The purse itself is 11 inches deep and 12.5 inches wide at the top.
A large hobo handbag, it also has the extra magnetic snap. I have more felted cross-body handbags in the works and have added my “Peace Sign Felted Tote Bag” to Wattery Totteries on Etsy just recently, too.
These are one-of-a-kind, eclectic and collectible felted purses.
