Felted bags

Another project finished, and gifted! I made this purse for my mom for her birthday. I knitted it and then felted it and added the flower embellishment. This is the first project I have felted. It was easy, however, I think I'd felt for longer or use a bit heavier yarn next time, but I love the shape and color of the bag.

I was so fond of the felting that I thought I would try some more. I used the "Felted Sweater" project in Alter Knits. It was very easy. I got the sweater for about $2 at the Salvation Army. This could be a very fun project to try again. I can imagine with some embellishments or a fun sweater you could really have fun with it.
