Felted Tulip Bag
The Felted Tulip Bag is a bright and colourful addition to any wardrobe, and is guaranteed to lift your spirits on a dull grey day. It brings a touch of spring to your wardrobe, no matter what time of year it is.
This unusual bucket bag is knit, felted and then embellished using felt and embroidery silks. The embellishment is not necessary to have a lovely bag, but it does lift it to the next level. Even if you have never done embroidery before, this embellishment is very simple and a good place to start practising a new skill, as full illustrated instructions are given.
This 22 page pattern and tutorial clearly outlines all the embroidery steps, along with full instructions on how to line this unusual shaped bag, and add handles. If you can sew a straight line on a sewing machine then you should be able to follow these tutorials, which will take your bag making to another level.
