FELTED BUCKET BAG - Red and brown stripes


I am teaching myself to felt knitted and crocheted stuff - it is a great pleasure. This simple bag was crocheted, and then felted in the washing machine on a 40 degree cycle. The result is pretty! This time, using another type of wool, the color did not fade at all. The bag is lightweight but sturdy. It has a small pocket with rounded corners on the back side, and is not lined. The heart actually is not so bright red, but just right. It was made some years ago from poly clay by one of my granddaughters and I found it in the box while looking for a button, luckily, because it fits so nicely, it is glued on with a special type of glue. This morning I showed the bag to her mother - she loved it and she got it... :-)
(And I am working on another one - in a knitted design.)

Oh, how gorgeous!! I really like the style and the colours. I'm sure the bag will be great to hold.

I'm so curious about the next one you are making too. Can't wait to see it :)

You really made me want to try to crochet and felt a bag :) I think I will have to try that once.

Have a lovely day, Yael :)

What a gorgeous bag, Yael!!!
As Dawn said, it must be such a pleasure to hold it... and of course to wear it! The clay heart gives it a sweet touch!
