This is Lynda’s own colourful creation for the next Felted Handbag Workshop (starting March 10) using Noro Bonbori and Peace Fleece, all 100% wool.

Look at Lynda’s hand in the photo below…this is approximately where she says the bag will felt to. We shall see! She’s also making a mini-pouch to hang inside for her keys. Great idea, and such bright cheerful colours (that turquoise is one of Lynda’s favourite colours–and no wonder).

Here is Jen’s pre-felted handbag. She used Noro and Lima to get the effect. We can’t wait to see it felted. The I-cord (you know the I stands for “Idiot”, don’t you?) cast-off should be really interesting.

This is a different view of Jen’s bag showing the special stitch on the bottom….it should felt up very densely.
