This felted purse is great for a first time felting project. After knitting the bottom in garter stitch, the majority of the purse is knit in the round. Has an I-Cord strap. The pattern includes i-cord instructions. Also has knit instructions for pocket, to be attached after felting.

If you enjoy needle felting this purse design is wonderful because the flap does not cover the front of the purse. It gives you plenty of room for your unique design. I have added some photos to show needle felting, this pattern does not teach needle felting.

This design can be knit with any worsted wool or wool blend yarn that will felt.

After felting measurements:
Circumference (including depth) = 23 – 25½”
Height of bag, with flap folded down = 9” – 12”
After felting measurements vary because of differences in individual felting processes.

This purse is named after my sweet daughter-in-law, Lindsey Harrell. This is the style purse that she enjoys carrying every day. It was exciting to her to have one of my patterns named after her.
