I was lurking around one the craft site, and saw a couple felted bags. I think they were crochet. I thought they were really cute, and would like to make one. Anyone knows how to do this? Is it a easy process?

I saw some folks made mrochet bags in ther street,it's not very difficult,but I think it really need patience.You must have patience to do that.For me,I don't think I have enough patience to make one myself.

Crochet is a great stress reliever. I was actually trying to find info about felting.

I just finished my first knitted purse with crocheted trim. But, I couldn't felt it because it is made out of acrylic yarn and I guess you can only felt wool. But, I'm going to line the inside. Maybe my next purse will be felted, but I need to learn how. There's lots of helpful people on Wetcanvas who can show me how. But, I haven't done it yet, so I can't tell you if it's easy or not.

Thanks for the best response. I finished my purse and was using it quite a bit, but then it started to wear down and I need to repair it. I did learn how to felt things, but I haven't made anything of wool, yet.
