1st Place Felted Bag

That's me with my
Prize winning felted bag
Northcoast Knitting Guild Beginner's Knitter Catagory

I hand dyed the yarn for this felted bag with Kool-Aid. Posted by Picasa

The handle is made from clear plastic flexible PVC tubing that can be purchased at your local hardware store. Simply cut to the length you want, then thread your yarn through the tubing.

The tubing handle is then attached to the bag with loose leaf metal rings you can find at Office supply store. You will need to make 2 holes across the tubing end so that the ring can go through and it will lay flat. Then poke the metal ring through the bag on both sides and connect your handle.
