I finished this about a month and a half ago but just downloaded all the pics off my cam. I used Cascade 220 in Cerise and Bernats Disco-Lash instead of a short boa yarn. The disco-lash is a pain to knit with but it looks AMAZING after.. it's eyelash yarn with little iridiscent bits.. too fun.

UNFELTED


FELTED


This was my first time felting, my first time knitting a buttonhole and my first time using a carrier yarn or any novelty yarn so it was a really great way to learn everything.
I'm making a much bigger one for my friends birthday with black Cascade 220 and black disco-lash (it has pink iridescent bits), and I'm going to line it with a zipper...
Thanks again for sharing the pattern!!

That looks great! What an awesome job! Isn't felting great? It's so forgiving!!

Here's my felted clutch!! I L O V E love it!!! I sewed a zipper in it so my stuff doesnt fall out... which was a great feat for me because I am incapable of working a sewing machine and kinda suck at hand sewing.... nevertheless it turned out A OK.

and the inside... my zipper Smiley and my stuff

I'm climbing on the felted bandwagon as well -- thanks so much for the patterns and the inspiration!

I'm pretty bad at sewing seams, so I knit in the round, and then did a three needle bind-off for the first time.  It worked a treat!  I still have to put a quick lining in these, but they've already been claimed and I'll be making some more and playing around with the proportions.

I used blue Lion wool, and pink varigated Paton's Soya-wool, plus some Fun Fur I had in my stash.  I think the Soya shrunk just a bit mre lengthwise.

pre-felting:

finished purses:

Thanks again for the inspiration!

this pattern really is easier then it looks! I dug it up to share with you guys! The eyelash just stays fluffy, while the wool will felt for you! you can make it bigger, but i made the "clutch" version - Anyway - here is the pattern....



FELTED "FUNNY" MINI CLUTCH

90 yrds worsted wool
1 Skein Funny yarn ( like eyelash type)
Size 10 Needles

With Wool, CO 40 St
work in garter ( k all st ) for 7 rows
Next row - KNIT 13, BIND OFF 14, KNIT 13
Next row - KNIT 13, CAST ON 14, KNIT 13
Work in garter for 4 rows, wool only
Next row - Add funny yarn - work both strands tog. for 20 rows
Work 8 rows garter WOOL ONLY for bottom of bag
Add funny again and work for 20 rows
Work in garter for 4 rows, wool only
Next row, KNIT 13, BIND OFF 14, KNIT 13
Next row, KNIT 13, CAST ON 14, KNIT 13
work in garter for 7 rows
BIND OFF
Fold in half, sew side seams, weave in ends

FELTING -
Fill washer to lowest level with hot water
let washer agitate in its longest cycle ( dont let water run out, may have to repeat several times )
Check for desired size every 10 min
when bag is felted to your satisfaction, Press the water out of bag, and let it spin until the end of the spin cycle
Shape bag and let dry - ALL DONE!!!

(** I found when felting, next time i would use a garment bag, as it seemed a little rough and i had to re-sew some of my seams... this was my 1st felting project and was fun & easy( once i figured out the tricky cast on for the bag handles...) :-) Have fun making this one & show us all pics when you do!! ~ Sammy
