Kate's Purse

This is the purse I made for my sister. It's my second attempt at felting. I taught myself how to knit because I liked the felting so much! The lining turned out better than I thought it would. I had to knit the purse, then felt it (wash it in warm water - I did it in the washing machine). Once it shrank down I did a little measuring and eyeballing to get the lining to fit. I sewed the lining up on my machine and hand sewed it into the purse. I'm going to try to take some pictures of my daughters purse - it was the first attempt at felting! I just taught myself to cable knit, so stay tuned because that makes felting SO much more fun!
