Variations on a theme :: a felt bag



I never thought a plastic produce bag would bring this much inspiration...
Here's another take on the very same bag - a "slashed" felt purse.
And just like the T-shirt grocery bag this one's really easy to make too.
A perfect little purse to take to the park, with an apple, a book, some sunglasses and sunscreen tucked inside.
Not that we need any sunscreen here right now, but you never know...

xo, P.

i love that one too. does the felt hold up well to a lot of weight??

I'm not sure - I haven't put it through the test, yet, as I finished it this morning. I used a really heavy weight felt, though. Maybe I should have lined it, or at least the handles - but I was a little bit in a rush (I'm always like that when I have an idea). So, let's call this one a prototype for now... ;)

brilliant ideas those bags! My sister-in-law wants a t-shirt one, we both thought that was a great use for our old t-shirts. I followed your link to the needle felting you were doing....do you have a finished photo of that one in your blog? I loved the flowers and the texture, did you leave it all cream colour? I thought it was very striking and beautifully done :-)

@ Baa-me Kniits: I completely forgot about that basket, so thanks for the reminder - I never did a follow-up post on it, but I did post some pictures of it on Flickr. You can find them here, together with a whole bunch of other (needlefelted) cratfs: http://www.flickr.com/photos/32481530@N05/sets/72157610890541557/
