A beautiful, stylish shoulder bag. This curvy shoulder bag is deceptively large, and will easily carry all your essentials in an elegant way.

This bag is knitted first in pure wool and then felted in an ordinary washing machine.
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!!

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.
I do hope you enjoy your knitting project and if you would like to read more about my work please visit my website www.clairefairalldesigns.co.uk
