Felted Diaper Bag

Lion Brand® Lion® Wool

GAUGE:

11 sc + 12 rows = 4" [10 cm] before felting. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

Bag will shrink during felting process.

Felted Diaper Bag Reviewed by Patricia Monday on 2013-07-07 *****
I made this out of wool in purples and teals, and felted it. Use it as a crochet project bag, tote, anything but not diaper bag. Got lots of complements.
Oh, eventually I lined it with the bottom of a nylon gown that I didn't wear anymore. Sewed across bottom, whipped it to tote at the top inside and nothing can fall out of holes.
