It depends on how many books you want to put in it. I think it would be strong enough for one or maybe two but any more than that would probably stretch it. Mine is lined with pretty strong nylon fabric so the bag itself I don't think would stretch if you did that but the straps definitely would if it was really heavy. I don't know about felting granny squares, I've never felted anything. Good luck!

Is there any way you could type out or email the pattern?  I can't get it to print and it is kind of hard to read.  That is a great purse!  You did an awesome job with colors and your additions.

Thanks omegabic! Here's the pattern:

Square (Make 20): With color A, ch 4; join with a sl st in first ch to form a ring.
Rnd 1: Ch 5 (counts as a dc and a ch-2 sp), [3 dc in ring, ch 2] 3 times, 2 dc in ring; join with a sl st in 3rd ch of ch-5.
Rnd 2: (Sl st, ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) all in first sp, ch 1, [(3 dc, ch 2, 3dc) all in next sp, ch 1] 3 times; join to top of ch-3. Fasten off.
Rnd 3: With right side facing, attach color B in any ch-2 sp; (ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) all in same sp, *ch 1, 3 dc in next ch-1 sp, ch 1**, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) all in next ch-2 sp; rep from * around, end at **; join. Fasten off.

Sew squares together following diagram.


Top Edging: With right side facing, attach color A at top edge; ch 1, work sc all around top edge, increasing and decreasing as necessary to keep work flat; join with a sl st to first sc. Fasten off.

Strap: With two strands of color A held together as one, ch 100. Fasten off. Weave through corner spaces at top of bag. Sew ends of chain together. Weave in yarn ends.
(I DIDN'T USE THIS FOR MY STRAP, INSTEAD I HELD TWO STRANDS TOGETHER AND CH ABOUT 5-7 OR WIDTH YOU WOULD LIKE STRAP TO BE, THEN SC UNTIL THE STRAP IS THE LENGTH YOU WOULD LIKE. SEW ENDS TO CORNERS OF BAG AND WEAVE IN ENDS. I WANTED A STURDIER STRAP. )

Front tie: With two stands of color A held together as one, ch 75. Fasten off. Weave in yarn ends. Make a knot at each end of chain. Weave chain through center front and back (from front to back to front); tie in a bow for bag closure.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FEEL FREE TO PM ME! HOPE THAT HELPS.

the first thing i thought was that would look cool as a tank top. i wouldn't make  it in the colors they used in the pattern photo. its nice to see a totally different color combo thats more inspiring! nice work!

This is exactly what I'm looking for! I've made some granny squares but don't know what to use them for.
Alexia, could you please explain how to sew them together? Is it sewing by hand or joining squares with slip stitch?
The chinese characters made a nice touch! Great job!

Thanks. I joined them with slip stitches. If you make one post a pic, I'd love to see it!

I am almost finished with mine, can you tell me how you did your lining?  I am totally ignorant to the world of sewing.   Embarrassed

I just cut two pieces of fabric in the shape of the bag and sewed them together, then pinned it to the inside and sewed it on. I'll try to take some pictures of the lining so maybe you can see what I mean.
