Handbags: Pink Funhouse and Thorny Rose

My first knitted/crocheted/felted bags.

I am so pleased for them as I'd never felted in the washing machine before, but I am very happy with how they both turned out.

Pink Funhouse Bag

Sorry guys, I just really like Pink - the band - especially the new album, which of course is called Funhouse. :-)

The bag has been knitted with 100% wool in a pale pink and trimmed with a variegated 100% wool yarn at the top. The rose is a mix of the two yarns. It closes with a little button on the inside and is unlined.

It's a fairly small bag, but perfect for a night out. :-) If you need exact measurements, just drop me a line. It will go into my Etsy shop by the end of the week and will cost around £25.

Thorny Rose Bag

Don't worry, there aren't any real thorns, just knitted ones. :-)

The bag was knitted from 100% wool in a French navy blue and a lovely bright right.

Above you can see one of the roses in detail. On the top right is the closure that slips over the centre rose to securely hold the bag closed. On the bottom left you can see that the strap of the bag is lined with a organza ribbon. The bottom right picture shows the little pocket inside.

The bag can be held by the strap or you can put the strap over your shoulder. It's not a huge bag, but you can fit quite a lot inside.

Like the other bag it will go into my Etsy shop by the end of the week. The cost will be around £40 + P&P.


  1. The pink bag is cute but the French navy bag is to die for - love the colour combination and the OTT roses, works beautifully.
