felted tote

a couple of weeks ago, mike and i visited our friends jeff and jodi in madison. jodi had the cutest felted bag to keep her knitting projects handy, and was working on another for her mom. of course, as soon as i got home, i went and bought some wool and looked up a similar pattern. i made one a bit smaller that would make a cute purse. it is still blocking/drying, but i think i might line it once it’s dry to help it keep its shape and make the handles a little sturdier. so cute!

the pattern is a smaller, modified version of angela’s fabulous felted bag. next i plan on making a larger version. love it!

About Liv

i have a lot of hobbies. i cook and bake – usually, from scratch. i paint, though not as often as I would like. i love to make pottery on the wheel, though this hobby fell by the wayside while I was in grad school. now that I’ve finished, I’m looking forward to potentially getting back into ceramics and devoting more time and energy to all of my hobbies. my mom got me hooked on refinishing garage sale or thrift shop furniture into beautiful, rich pieces for the home. and my true love is crochet – i love the feeling of achievement in taking a ball of yarn and a hook and turning it into a beautiful afghan or purse or set of coasters. in some way or another, all of these hobbies center around making things – thus, creation nation.
