Any suggestions on where to find the ultimate felted purse pattern? I have seen many, but they all seem to fall a little short of my expectations. Ideally I'd love a nice "tote" bag that is deep and narrow with strong straps. Let me know....

I would suggest looking at "My Constant Companion" from Knitters Stash book or individual pattern at http://www.knitkit.com/

Karen, have you seen the Farmer's Market Bag from Weekend Knitting by Melanie Falick. I can't remember off-hand if it is felted or not, but that seems easy enough to change. It's a beautiful pattern. Not sure if it is bigger than what you were thinking, though.

Here are a couple freebies:

Two Old Bags puts out a bunch of felted bag patterns - ask your LYS if it carries any. You can see photos on this site:

Good luck!

Karen, I liked Two Old Bags "City Shoulder Bag" enough that I've made 5 of them. Felted, it's big enough to hold file folders or 3-ring binders. You can put a stiff bottom in it to make it stand up like a flat-bottomed lunch bag, but I liked mine flat as it hugs the body better. The straps are very strong, a flat double I-cord.

Karen,
I made the felted tote from Knitter's Winter 2003 magazine. I liked it because it is wide on the bottom and tapers as it is worked to the top.(Clear as mud?) If you have the issue it is worth checking out.

Pamela,

I'm afraid I don't have a copy of that magazine, but the pattern sounds perfect for what I was looking for. Any way to get a back issue or see a picture?

Thanks - Karen.

Karen,

Good news and bad news. You can get a copy of the magazine at the Knitting Universe website (www.knittinguniverse.com) - under back issues. Unfortunately you can't view anything beyond the cover. Sometimes yarn stores have back issues still for sale - or if your library subscribes.

Hope this helps,
Pamela :)

Christina,

I'm so glad you're guilty of reading too many blogs, you had some great patterns to pass on and I really appreciate it. I've got some serious inspiration to get started now.

Thanks again, Karen.

well...I just so happen to have a pattern that might meet your needs. It has the option of 1 or 2 side pockets that can accomidate cell phones, water bottles, baby battles, shades and keys. It has a channel along the brim in which you thread elastic through to insure that it will not loose its shape... you knit a fun novelty yarn collar along the bring too ( not the knid where the novelty yarn is combined w/the wool which looks like bad hair plugs).....its big enogh for all my girlies stuff plus a travel pack of wipes and a diaper or two. You can squeeze in some yarn and keep your needles in the side pockects....depending on your color choices it can be quite elegant, funky, conservative or bold.
