This fun felted bag uses an interesting construction technique and very felt-able yarn to make the simple circle-to-square motifs dissolve into apparently seamless floating dots. Attached motifs form the center of the handles, with single-crochet bands adding width and support. Felting makes this bag sturdy enough to carry all your essentials.

FINISHED SIZE About 44" in circumference and 40" in length including straps before felting; about 30" circumference and 30" length including straps after felting.
