This bag just kept getting bigger and bigger! It took 7 skeins of Lamb's Pride Bulky yarn. I was knitting a skein a day for a while. One of my children suggested that I could just tell her that I had made her a suitcase!
The bag is loosely based on the messenger bag from Knitting for Peace. Then I duplicate stitched the tragedy and comedy masks on the front flap before felting it. It is still a good sized bag but my daughter was thrilled with it. She talked about how many things it was going to hold and was very excited!
The other felted bag I made was a pink and blue purse sized bag for my DIL. This one was also Lamb's Pride Bulky yarn. I folded the sides in and ran the handles through them so the top of the bag would close up a little bit. It is very cute. DIL was very pleased too.
I also made a crocheted purse for dd, Lisa, in her favorite green. The pattern for that one was the Exchange Bag from the Happy Hooker. I will have to see if I can borrow it for a picture.
