Felted Purse

This was the original yarn chosen for my knitting needle case, but as it turned out the pattern was incorrect by a few hundred yards of yarn needed for the case. My mom knitted and felted this bag for me. The only thing I did was pick out the fabric for the lining, sewed it, picked out the button for the closure, and crocheted and felted the loop to go around the button. It is lovely, although I do wish that the handle was one large one instead of the two winding around, but it gives the purse character nevertheless. My part on felting was rather easy. I took the loop and just rubbed it between my hands in the bathroom sink under hot water for awhile.
