Have Fun With Felting

Some people are intimidated by felting crochet. Don’t be! It’s a great way to add a new twist to your traditional crochet work. This crochet patriotic party purse pattern is specifically designed for easy felting. It’s super smart to felt crochet purses.


Because felting makes the purse stitches stick together better, closing up any gaps. Therefore you can stick your lipstick, pens, or other small items in your purse without having to worry about them popping out. Of course, you could line a crochet purse instead. But felting a purse is a fun way to avoid lining while doing something new.

Simple Stitches, Unique Texture

You’ll use really simple crochet stitches to make this striped purse. You’ll basically just work half double crochet stitches. Sometimes you’ll work in one loop only. And yet, you’ll get really unique texture. This texture comes from three features:

  • Holding two strands of wool yarn together as you crochet
  • Adding eyelash yarn to some parts of the purse as you crochet
  • Felting the purse after the fact

Combined, the result is a purse that you’re going to love to touch. Speaking of which, young girls will also enjoy receiving the crochet patriotic party purse. If you have a tween in your life, then it’s a great make for them. It also makes a good mommy-and-me gift.
