Here's another bag created from my "Madame Dupaix" bag pattern. It's knitted and then felted. I also needle-felted a gecko to it this time. I like how the colors work together. It seems like each new bag I make with this pattern becomes my new favorite! I'm not sure why this picture is smaller than the other ones. The bag itself is larger!



This little purse is supposed to be one of those that goes with an easter dress. I made it out of cotton yarn, with novelty yarn carried along for the handle and top of the purse. Inside, I have sewn plastic canvas to the front and back to give it more stability.



Back in March I posted a picture of this purse in progress. It's made from a stitch pattern called the hazelnut stitch. As I mentioned before, I think it looks like raspberries here! I put a zipper in this purse; my first zipper, I might add. Worked out just fine. I also lined it because there are holes in the tops of all the "raspberries." I was working with just one skein of yarn, and just barely had enough to finish it.
