It's Stashing Tote

My newest pattern is off the hook, through the washing machine (more about this in a sec), and back from my awesome testers!!

Introducing It's Stashing Tote! Say it fast. Yes. It sounds like It's Dashing! And it is!!!



It's Stashing Crochet Pattern--colorful crochet patterns by Felted Button


As you might have noticed from the name Felted Button that I love felt and buttons. This beauty has both!! Oh, and oodles of color.


One of my testers did it in black, grey and soft blue. Lots of options, I tell ya!

Admittedly, I have a disease. It's called "compulsive containerism" and I've got it bad. I love bags. On a trip to Taiwan for 10 days, I came home with 11 bags. Just call me "The Bag Lady".

Now, if you look at this and think, "Wow, I would like to make that, but I have never worked with wool and felting." FEAR NOT! In the pattern I walk you through the steps of felting--which can easily be done in your washing machine. The results, a sturdy, strong and durable bag which will last!

The pattern gives all the information on yarns, how to put the bag together, and how to felt it.

You can find the pattern in my Craftsy shop, Ravelry shop, and Etsy shop.

  5. This is beautiful! I wish I could work with wool more but I seem to be allergic. A small felting project every now and then is all i can do. I went through a period of "felter madness" a couple of years ago. This piece would be a nice way to go a little mad again :-P

    1. Oh, dear! I'm grateful that I'm not allergic, but I can only imagine. I would stick to little projects, too! This one could be worked maybe just a square at a time and set aside to "recover". ;)
