Felted mouse and bag

I have been having a ball. A ball with 100% wool.

My two little cousins are coming to spend Christmas with us and I was dying to use the felting wool I brought a couple of months ago and this was the perfect excuse. Two home made gifts!

Firstly I'll just allow you a couple of seconds to Oooooooooo, Mmmmmmmmm over the colours!

 The little bag was made using a fandabbydosey pattern here (if you haven't checked this site out you are in for a flippin treat!) I used the mobile pouch pattern and then have added a strap. Its idea for a little girls over the body bag.

Look at the sherberttie colours. I loved knitting with this yarn!!!!

Hanging on the tree ... and why not! Its Christmas!

Then there is this cheeky little fella.

I hope Ben likes him. I certainly do.

I used the pattern from my tutorial for a little knitted mouse. You can see it here.

This was my first attempt at felting. I am certainly very pleased and would recommend you have a go too. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


  1. Fantastic bright colours. Did you felt the wool or the finished article, or was the wool felted in the first place? Der!!!

  2. Both projects are neat, and I do love the colors! I still have not felted anything yet...on purpose that is :) I will check out the site you mentioned. Thanks, Kate! xx from Gracie

  3. Beautiful gifts and gorgeous colours, love the mouse :)
