I've been wanting to felt for a while, I did a few flowers but that just made me want to felt something bigger. Felting is so nifty, it's like magic.  Wink I very loosely based this purse off of the Fat-bottom bag. I really like it, but it's too small for me to carry all my junk in. It's about 12 inches wide and 8 inches high, what can I say, I carry around lots of junk, lol. Made with two skeins of Patons Merino and an I hook.

And the adorable flower pattern is from here:

Love the colors and stripes AND the size. Great job!

Do you have to line a felted purse?

Nope! That's the best part, the felting makes the fabric thick and closes up all the holes, no need for lining! I've been debating whether or not to add an inside pocket though?

Wow, this is fun! I love the colors. I'd add an inside pocket, just for convenience. Sweet bag.

Thanks everyone! Cheesy I made a matching little zippered pouch to be carried inside (in lieu of an inside pocket). I'm not at home right now but I'll try to remember to update the first post when I do get home.
