purse 11 - azalea

 

 
 

purse_azalea

Many knitters use this felted bag as their knitting bag for the current project they are working on. There is plenty of room for a large project. Knit in pieces and stitched together. Because felting is so forgiving the sewing stitches never show after felting. There are 2 side pockets and a larger front pocket. A great button adds an interesting touch. The purse handles are jumbo I-cords.
