Child's Felted Crochet Purse

This is such an easy project - and lots of fun! I just got some thick wool (100% wool or it won't felt) yarn and crocheted a rectangle. Then I folded it and sewed the sides together (with the wool yarn). I just crocheted a single chain for the strap. When it's all together wash in warm water and let dry! If it doesn't shrink as much as you'd like you can wash again and toss it in the dryer for 5 min to help it shrink up. The purse was adult size before felting and ended up the PERFECT size for my 2 year old after felting.

I chose not to line this purse, I like how it looks as is.
