FELTED KNIT TOTE

My mom made for me a felted knitted tote for Christmas.  The tote is knitted and then after you knit the tote you have to put the tote in the washing machine.  On the front of the tote my mom made a design using i-cord.  The inside of the tote is also lined with blue cotton material with even an inside zippered compartment.  The handles of the tote are also made by using the i-cord method.  I will be using this tote to hold all of my knit and crochet projects that I will be bring to my crochet group and knitting group.

I really love this tote because my mom spent a lot of time working on this and her friend even worked on the tote by sewing the lining in the inside of the tote.

Handmade gifts are the best because they are made with love.


This is the felted tote.


This is the inside of the tote with the sewn in lining.

The yarn that was used for this is Noro, The Wonder of Nature, Silk Garden.  The color is #45 Lot #D.
The yarn is Silk, Mohair and Lambswool.  The website for the yarn is: www.eisakunoro.com 
The yarn is from Japan.
The pattern for this knitted tote is by:  Book Patons Designer Felted Handbags, #1 Felted Bag with Motif.
Use size 7 knitting needle
Pattern calls for 100grams = 4 balls
My mom used 8 balls, at $11 a skein
