This easy to knit, felted bag has a front pocket, crisp shaping with contrast edging and an interesting layered edge seam feature. The soft but strong felt bag is an ideal size to keep your Kindle / I pad or similar sized device safe and secure. The flap secures with 2 magnetic closures or a button and the strap will fit neatly over your shoulder and hold this slim line bag close to your body for stylish security.
This bag is knitted first in filz/felting wool and then washed in an ordinary washing machine to create thick soft felt
My clear and detailed 7 page pattern contains detailed instructions and photos to guide you step by step through, knitting, attaching I-cord sewing up and felting your bag.
Felted Size 21cm / 8 ¼ inches high 16cm / 6 ¼ inches wide Strap length approx 106cm / 41¾ inches (longer options included)
Any felting yarns will work well for this pattern-Look to see if the yarn is called a felting/ filz wool. Most suppliers will say if it is good for felting but always check for hand-wash only!!

What others have made
My sketch book is always full of new toy and doll characters waiting to be created in yarn.
I love bringing them to life with my knitting needles!
I spend my days in my sunny studio with my Siamese cat for company.
Surrounded by colourful yarn, my hands are busy clicking the knitting needles or sketching current ideas.
I create dolls and toys to celebrate the seasons and important times in people’s lives, Christmas and Easter- New babies and snuggly tired toddlers.
In between creating new dolls and teddy bears. I’ve created patterns for knitting magazines and worked with retail firms to create knitting kits.
I started out selling my knitted and felted bags at Craft and Design events where I enjoyed meeting other knitting enthusiasts.
It was these knitters who convinced me to publish my patterns for others to enjoy.
