Felted Tote

I recently finished this felted tote and just had to share. I haven't made a bag in quite some time, but I think this one is a keeper and has inspired me to make more!

Your tote is beautiful! Love the button and handles. And the color is just gorgeous! Can you tell me what kind and color yarn you used?

The fiber I used was a special yarn purchased at a show by Solitude Wool. It is a blend of two types of yarn: Tunis (in shades of green, rust, turquoise) and Karakul (in dark teal). After making the bag, I felted it to blend the colors and they look great together.

 

Note: All stitches were single crochet worked through BOTH loops. I also made a felted bowl working through back loops only and it gives an entirely different look to the finished fabric.

That's pretty, I love the color, I've never felted anything before. This makes me want to try it.

 

Felting is so much fun and there is a lot of information on the web about the process. You just have to try it and then you will be hooked!
