Felted Mosaic Tote


Recommended Posts

When I did the Retro Mosaic Tote someone here suggested that it would make a great pattern for felting.


I started work on one right away.


Hmmm, I have the "after" shots first. Oh well :lol


After the wash it measures 10 X 10.5 inches X 6 inches.



Before shots next

It started out as about 13 X 13 squared (front and back), and 7 X 13 sides and bottom.



I have more pictures of the sides and bottom before and after and a couple more of the front and back in my blog, (see link below).


It really looks cool. I only washed it twice and it filled in so nicely I don't think I will wash it anymore.

I love the way your bag turned out after felting :hook . I have been making purses, mostly patterns out of my head, but haven't tried the felting yet.


What kind of yarn did you use and what size hook?

I used a size J hook.


For the thread, our Hobby Lobby here is clearancing out many items right now. I found two needlepoint kits which were exactly the same, with 100% Persian wool yarn inside. Six dollars each. Woohoo!


So I made the bag with all the colors inside. I saw they were earth tones and thought it would be nice. They were originally Thirty dollars a kit. Yep, that's right!


I picked up two more kits, (both of them are different), so I can still make a couple of things. I am tackling a felted bear at the moment. I have no idea what I'm doing!! :lol
