A sturdy felted messenger bag is spruced up with colorful needle-felted pansies. To use yarn for needle felting, simply untwist it and brush it back to its original roving form, then blend colors as a painter would.

Skill Level: Intermediate.

Additional materials:

  • 1.5” D rings, 2 (2 additional D rings for optional adjustable strap);
  • yarn needle;
  • tracing paper and pen;
