I'm not sure how to needle felt a bag - I would simply wet fet it from the beginning of the project.
But on closer examination of the pics in the gallery you linked to, I've noticed that in the post-wet-felting pics, there is a white block of padding inside the bag. Maybe the pouch part of the bag was needle-felted onto a similar block? Logically that would work. It'd be the same as when GraceO needle felts onto her hatblocks no?
