Mini Felted Bags


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 Β 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.

      Thank you Kathleen! Your compliment is one of the factors that motivates me to try new things. Of course, I won’t admit to being obsessed with knitting.
