Alex kindle bag knitting pattern


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!!
