Little Bag

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
Want something quick and fun to make? Try this little bag. It takes only a few hours to knit and less time than that to felt. The longest part of the whole project is waiting for it to air dry and even that was just overnight. I used the jewelry bag pattern on page 91 of the book Felted Knits by Beverly Galeskas. This is a great book with a large variety of projects and detailed instructions on how to shrink your knitting. The yarn used for this bag is Noro Kureyon (100% wool), knit on US 10 needles. The finished size after felting is 6" x 5 1/4". A piece of leather is run through the eyelet holes and embellished with a couple of charms that can double as stitch markers for a knitter. This bag will be a gift for my neighbor. I'm not sure exactly how she will use it, but I can see her filling it with her embroidery scissors, needles and notions for her next stitching project.
