Melon Ball Felted Crochet Purse

This purse is a great introduction to the art of felted crochet. Worked entirely in single crochet, the purse features a circular front and back connected by a gusset that does double-duty as a shoulder strap. I chose to crochet my project in two solid colors, but imagine the possibilities. Hand-painted yarn, self-striping yarn…the sky’s the limit! For best results, make sure that you are using 100% wool, though, and do felt a swatch before you begin your project.
