Of the 13 patterns, I was attracted by only 1, and have made a variation of it twice.

Next I shall make it with the zipper - learning a new skill!

I'm somewhat prejudiced against many of the other patterns since I'm not into felting. Therefore I would not purchase this book - but I'm really grateful that it was available at the library.

This was an interesting little book. I thought that they had included a pretty comprehensive list of patterns. I didn't see any bags that I wanted to knit. The page set up was pretty nice as well.

I did not like this book very much. I don't really think the designs can apply to this age, because they seem more like they were from the early 2000s. Which they were, but nonetheless...
And I also don't really get the whole 'knitter's dozen' thing. Is there actually a set number for a 'knitter's dozen'?

Again, too much felting for me. I have a wool allergy. But I did like some of the bags. Too bad I can't make most of them without knitting in gloves.

There's a felted entrelac purse in here I've started TWICE, and have yet to finish. It's absolutely fantastic; I'll get it done someday.

Gorgeous ideas for knitted and felted bags and purses. All of them are not the typical pattern ... something a little bit different!!

The one all my pals were making a few years back, the felted entrelac tote, is in here. My public library has it as 746.432 B149
