This beautiful knitted and then felted bag, available in two different styles - circular and rectangular - was inspired by the trellis that supports the climbing hydrangea in my garden. Woven through that hydrangea is a purple clematis with blossoms as big as dessert plates. The stunning pattern is created by a cable pattern that is worked in two different colors, fair-isle style.
Both sizes of this felted bag are perfect for a dramatic every day purse or knitting bag.
Add sweetheart roses with long stems from the Noni Flowers book to twine their way up the cables. Work the long stems in and around the cables before felting, tack in place, and then felt altogether for stunning results.
Conclude the bag with stiffener in the bottom, 6 24mm bag feet (one in the center and 5 around) and a JUL rolled leather handle. Consider the Prague handle attached with medium-sized handle brackets. Close with the beautiful Amazing Magnetic Snap.
