  Felt bags experiment

Felt bags experiment

One of the girls at work had a cute little felt bag from Kookai or some other store starting with K?. All the seams were on the outside and it was basically square so I thought it would be easy enough and I would get a cute little carry bag to haul my stuff between buildings.

It's basically easy peasy to make - two rectangles 30cm x 35cm, 10cm wide + handles. You can fit all the pieces in with 70cm of 90cm wide felt, but I would recommend buying 1.1m as I had to join to make the sides/bottom. I think it would sit better if this was all one piece.

I also think the felt on the original was much better quality - I had to feel all the felt at spotlight and these two where the thickest I could find but not as good as the original. For a fancy present, would be worth splurging on some good felt.

Mine is the brown, featuring ribbon from Miss Alson, and the caramel/pink one is for a girl at work.

I will let you know how they perform!
Do I spy handstitching??
Kikki K maybe? I was much admiring the felt bags they had. It was very thick felt though.

But I think you done well, I like the little flower
