Knitted bags can be made in any shape and size you like. Felting the finished bag will make it strong and sturdy enough to safely transport your treasures. Before felting, your bag might seem gigantic, but felting will magically transform it to the perfect size. Experiment with different color combinations, embellishments, and straps for totally different looks. Don’t be surprised when all your friends ask for one, too.
