(The bags pictured in this story are based upon the Dumpling Bag design by SheKnits but I crocheted my purses & needle felted the embellishments . Check out her brilliant custom closure made of double rings. Genious! )
Having recently purchased the remaining skeins of deeply discounted wool several weeks ago, I have now gone dabbling into the sinister & highly addicting world of felting.
Before long, I was searching on the net for felted bags. I was becoming obsessed as I searched Ravelry & Etsy & Crochet & Knit Pattern Central for the ultimate bag design. This is where my downfall hit me in earnest. There were patterns everywhere, each one more alluring than the next, calling my name across the moors of my brain..."Heathcliff, is that you"? Er, eh hem.....there were bags of all descriptions, a person could go mad by the sheer numbers alone, not to mention the cute factor of them all.
