Rectangular Felted Shoulder Bag
I am playing angel to a sweet gal who did not receive her Fall Felted Bag from the exchange. She is a "less is more" gal so I had to restrain myself and tone it down. I LOVE how this bag turned out. It's all HDC, crocheted in the front-loop-only, and the end product is nice and smooth. She really wants a shoulder bag but I didn't like how my i-cord turned out so I sewed on these purchased handles.
Then, I decided it was just a bit too plain so made this Quatrefoil Octagon motif, felted it and attached it to the front. Oh yeah, and it really needed some help to keep its nice shape so I added magnetic snaps.
