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!

Have decided to knit a few more large hobo handbags for felting. They are really fun to do, and the results are always a surprise. Getting more than one ready for felting at the same time, saves hot water when it’s time to felt. I’ve finished the knitting and crocheting for the first one . It’s called: “The chicken or the egg?”…It’s a favorite saying of a certain pragmatist I know, and I found all the theme ingredients for this recipe in my fabric and yarn stash. Follow this blog for a free pattern for a felted tote bag.
