French Market Bag

Here is a felted bag I completed sometime ago and just got around to snapping a photo.  DSC01345 To be honest, I hate the shape of the bag. I think I felted it too much (if that is possible). Maybe with a button to hold it closed it could be salvaged.

The next purse I am knitting is from this book that I recently added to my stash. I just love the purse on the cover, it is on my to make list.

We will see how it turns out.

I love that first purse, too, and am going to have to look for the book. Please post a photo when you complete the triangle bag. I've made so many felted slippers and need something might be time for a new purse!

Oooh la la. Very French-market inspired. Adorable.

Can't wait to see the next project!

Hope all is well. ;-)

I saw a tote bag with ties added on the sides a couple of inches in from both sides of each side seam. When they were tied across the side seam, the bag became more shaped and narrower. I bet something like that (If you can picture it) would work on that purse.
