This is felted from Lion Brand Wool yarn in white since I couldn't find a feltable green color I liked. It is made from my Mini Felted Clutch Purse pattern only extended for an extra 10 rows to give it a little more room. I like how the way this turned out and the decorations can be changed out for different holidays.

I have made 2 more of my Mini Felted Clutch Purses for Valentines Day. For the pink one I used Lion Wool and 2 different size hooks so the top at the handles would flair outward. It measures 6 1/4" from handles to bottom and the width is 11 1/2". The second purse was made from Classic Merino in Rosewood-a variegated yarn I thought looked pretty in the store but I really don't like it after making the purse. I experimented and made this one deeper-very easy just added 10 rows. Maybe I will embellish this one and will like it better. My stepdaughter says its cool-looks like pink and purple camo to her. In my opinion I think the Lion Wool felted the best out of the two yarns and I will use this for these purses from now on. I am considering submitting my pattern for publication to several places-we'll see what happerns.

This is the perfect size for a wallet, keys and lipstick or compact-great when a big bag is too much. This is felted with Patons Felt It in Adobe. I think I will make a few more in different colors. A rose colored one with a felted heart would be perfect for Valentines Day.

This pattern is from another one from Debbie Stoller's "Happy Hooker" book. I used Lion Suede yarn in taupe crocheting with an I hook and the accessories came from Joann's-the flower is a pin so I can remove it and change to another color or flower if I like. The pictures don't do the ribbon justice-it is brown velvet and matches the flower. I like the idea I can switch the ribbon and flower-makes it a year round bag in whatever color palette I choose for the accessories.
