A little bit of knitting and a lot of felting! Fun way to try out intarsia knitting.

This fun and trendy bag is easy to knit and assemble and makes a great excuse to practice your intarsia skills. The felting process results
in a firm, sturdy fabric, and a small inner pocket makes this a very practical accessory. Follow the chevron motif on the flap like the bag in the picture, or invent your own intarsia motif!
