So, I have a grand idea.  I need a new purse, and I want to make myself one - the plan is to crochet it, and then full it so that it isn't, as crochet tends to be, full of holes were pens can work their way through.

I'd like it to be an argyle pattern (I'm crazy for argyle, and I can't explain it), and I can't decide if I should work the pattern into the crochet before the bag is fulled, or if I should make separate, felted pieces and needle-felt them into the fulled piece.  Or something else.  I thought I'd ask and get people's opinions, since I've never needle felted before (it fascinates and frightens, with the stabbing and the barbs and the fluff and all).  I recall reading that it's hard, if not impossible, to needle-felt onto something that's already been "felted", so I'm not certain that it would work the way I'm imagining it working.

What say you, felting divas?  Should I just work the diamonds into the pattern, or make them and felt them on?

It's by no means impossible to felt onto a piece of fulled fabric.  It would be quite easy I would think.  I've needle felted onto a piece of comercial wool felt before, with no problems.  So I'd say, either way you go about it, your finished purse would turn out wonderfully!
