here is my bag!  like the title says, it's purple, crocheted, and felted.  It's also stripey.  I used Galway wool in 2 shades of purple, and some purple sparkley yarn I found in the bargain bin.  the flowers are also crocheted and felted and are on pinbacks so they can be moved about (or removed).
I entered the bag in my yarn store's bag show, and that's where the photos were taken.  the bags are all hung above head level so the photos are a little awkward.

closer up

and here are all the bags.  mine is by far the cutest.  Wink

Your purse is fabulous! It has motivated me even more to experiment with felting!
Was it made from a published pattern - or one of your own?

I made up the pattern myself!  I made lots and lots of swatches before I even started, and I'm glad I did, because it shrank a LOT lengthwise, and barely at all height-wise, and I had to allow for that in my pattern.
