Felt Tschchen

You would like to knit this cute bag? No problem! Here is the knitting pattern!

You need this:

  • 1 skein of knitting felt in blue and white (eg Coats Wash-and-felt-it-wool, handicraft shop)
  • Knitting needles size 8 (haberdashery)
  • Embroidery thread in white (haberdashery)
  • embroidery needle
  • Cord set in blue (department store)
  • about 20 cm rickrack in red (haberdashery)
  • Textile adhesive (eg from UHU)
  • Wooden button (haberdashery)
  • possibly Edelwei├čapplikation for ironing (haberdashery)
  • scissors

That's how it's done:

1. Make 24 stitches from the blue yarn and knit 14 rows in garter stitch. Connect 16 rows of white yarn. Continue in blue for 12 turns, finish white with 4 turns.

2. Sew all threads very well.

3. Wash the knit at 60 ┬░ C in the washing machine. The machine can be filled with other laundry. Form after washing, shape, let dry.

4. Turn the felt section inwards from the long side so that 2/3 of the area forms the pocket and 1/3 the flap.

5. Sew the edge together with embroidery thread.

6. Sew a piece about 6 cm long with a few stitches in the middle of the flap, sew on the button.

7. Attach a piece of rickrack in the width of the flap plus 6 cm of addition to the flap with textile adhesive, and glue the ends to the inside of the flap.

8. If necessary, iron an edelweiss application on the flap.

Tip: As an alternative to wash-and-felt-wool it is also possible to use 100% virgin wool without excessive twisting.
