That's really cute.  If you want to make something like that from scratch, could you just knit a big rectangle and sew the seams, then felt?  I don't know too many knitting skills, so i was wondering if this simple approach would work.

Could you describe the ruckus, sir?

felted accesories are so hot right now. i have scarves, hats and flowers, all hand felted, that i wear to accentuate my already colorful wardrobe. one thing i don't have yet is a felted purse!

the pouch and the purse are wonderful and you both should think about making them and selling them, at least to me.

sorry I haven't replied, Starry Eyed, you can for sure knit a rectangle then felt it but I didn't have time to knit it so I felted a wool sweater from Goodwill.  

Some sweaters get very thick after the washing and drying and are almost too thick to sew , esp with a zipper!

I cut a rectangle then used the directions from the "tyvek bag" to add a zipper.  So easy it was rediculous!  I love oil cloth and this was a way to use it in winter!

I do sell my stuff!  I got burnt out during the holidays from making so much stuff and am just now getting back to it.

Love x 10 the felted bag posted after mine!

What a good idea! I don't know how many times I've had someone mess up on my laundry and accidentally wash and dry my wool sweater. What a great way to use something I always thought was not useful. Thanks for the inspiration to turn that frustration of a ruined garment into something so wonderful and fun. Kudos!

Are you Kind?

Someone pointed me over here when I asked what I could do with sweaters in Florida. I LOVE these!! Don't know about the zipper, though, never tried doing those. Did you sew by hand or with a machine? Both of the purses look awesome!

I put the zipper in before I sewed up the sides.  I'm nost sure what category it's under but look up Tyvek bag adn there's great directions for sewing the zipper, it's by machine.  I use to be very very afraid of zippers but this way is so easy.  Thanks for the comp!  Lara
