Fasten off and weave in ends.

Next we are going to felt our pieces using one of the methods described in How to Felt (or Full) Your Piece. I prefer to leave the flower unattached until after felting because I feel like it gives me more control in shaping the pieces.

Some before pics …

Once you’ve felted the pieces and gotten the excess water out, shape them as desired. I stuffed the purse with some crumpled newspapers and hung it on a knob to shape the handles nicely. I gave my flower petals some little tugs until they were just how I wanted them and then waited for both pieces to dry. 

Now just sew your flower to your purse!

Finito!
I liked how this one came out so much that I made another one for myself. You can find my bag and pattern here.

    Both before and after felting are looking pretty ! :) the blend of colours in the purple yarn is more clearly visible in the felted purse.
    For crochet purses, sometimes I put a lining. Does the bind of felted purse closes all the gaps in the design so that we can do away with lining?

    Thanks for sharing the pattern:)

    I love his pattern & would like to make it but i dont understand the directions.
    I n your first directions iI don’t understand how you do one double crochet in 25stitches = 60. I’m confused! I’m not very experienced.
    Thanks

      Hi Rose :) I will try to help … First, keep in mind you will be working on both sides of the starting chain. To begin, you work 4 dc in the 4th chain from hook (this counts as 5 dc, the 4 you made and the 3 chains you skipped counts as a dc), then you work 1 dc in each of the 25 ch across, work 5 in the last chain (this helps you go around the corner to work on the other side of the chain), the work 1 dc in the next 25 ch, and join in top of beginning ch 3. This adds up to 60 sts. Make sense?

  17. Rose Rowton April 28, 2013 at 11:06 pm #

    Thank you so much. I understand now that I am making the bottom of the bag. I don’t know where my mind was? I’m starting row 3 & it looks good.
    Thanks so much for your quick reply. I really appreciate it.
    Rose

    • Kara April 28, 2013 at 11:20 pm #

      Yay! So glad it helped :)

  18. Rose Rowton May 7, 2013 at 7:17 pm #

    Hi Kara,
    Sorry to bother you again.
    I’m stuck on these instructions. Can you explain the to me.

    Round 16: Ch 1 (does not count as st), work 1 sc in same st as join and in each of the next 12 sts, work 40 sc over ch-30, 1 sc in each of the next 13 sts, 40 sc over ch-30 — 106 sts.

    Thank,
    Rose

    • Kara May 7, 2013 at 8:37 pm #

      Hi Rose :) No bother at all. I did respond to your email though, not sure why you didn’t get it. Here is what I wrote … I will try to help. First, please note that the 40 sc are worked over the chain-30, not into the chains themselves. These stitches should cover the chain completely and also make it sturdier. And the stitch count is based on 13 sc + 40 sc + 13 sc + 40 sc = 106 (see bolded numbers below). Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any more questions.

      Round 16: Ch 1 (does not count as st), work 1 sc in same st as join and in each of the next 12 sts, work 40 sc over ch-30, 1 sc in each of the next 13 sts, 40 sc over ch-30 — 106 sts.

      • Rose Rowton May 7, 2013 at 8:55 pm #

        Thank you Kara. Now I understand. OVER the whole handle. One little word solved the problem. I read & reread it but that did not sink in.
        Thanks again,
        Rose
        Ps may this question will help someone else.

      My pleasure, Heather! So glad you like it :)

        I just wanted to say thanks for pattern. It worked up and felted beautifully. I made one for each of my five nieces for Christmas and I love how they turned out. I did the flowers in three colors. I’d attached a picture but I can’t figure out how :). Anyway, thanks again.
