Here’s the perfect tote for a trip to the farmer’s market. This felted bag has a 2 color slip stitch pattern that mimics basketry. The solid colored bottom is oval shaped and gently rounds into the straight sides. The bag is knit of bulky weight yarn and then felted to create a very dense sturdy fabric. The pattern includes directions for felted I-cord handles. Finishing at approximately 15” across and 10” high, it’s big enough to accommodate all of your purchases. Basic instructions for felting are included.
