The apple doesn’t fall to far from the tree on this little mini purse. I finally sat down and figured the stitch and row gauge on a felted piece of fabric. I then measeured the metal frame and added four stitches for the seam on each side. I sewed the side seams leaving 2 and 1/2 inches open on each side which left about an inch to sew and then I felted it. I did several and they all came out the size of the frame. It was much easier than trying to sew the sides and get them even. I used the Brother Bulky machine and Paton’s yarn. It takes about 3 ounces. I cast on 34 stitches and knitted 80 rows. The bottom picture shows the ones that I will be doing. One will have a chicadee and one will have a cardinal and one will have a yellow finch if I can find a decent picture and one will have the woman in the hat that I did on the larger bag with the zipper. Of course, the one in green and white is the one in the picture.
