This handbag’s felted look is created with a two-part process. First it is crocheted with single crochet stitches using 100% wool yarn. Then it is placed in a washing machine filled with hot water to go through several agitation cycles. This process, known as fulling, literally shrinks the bag and creates a very sturdy, dense, yet extremely fluffy-soft fabric. You can actually cut a button hole in the finished bag and never worry about it unraveling.

As always this is a free written pattern along with a YouTube video tutorial (see link below).
