I've added a new page to the blog with lots of information about felting (aka fulling), including tips for successfully felting knit or crocheted projects. Even if you're not new to the crafty art of felting, you might find something interesting in the article Felting 101. To give felting a try, check out these felted crochet projects, including my new pattern for an embroidered felted backpack, just in time for fall.
New pattern! Embroidered Felted Backpack, $5
Perfect for toting anything from your current craft project to books and groceries, this backpack is simple to crochet and fun to finish. The fulled bag closes with a drawstring cord, pulled through grommet-set holes, and a magnetic snap. Use our flower graphic as a guide for an embroidered embellishment or add your own design.
