Felt hand bag for Phoebe-baby!

A little girl I know turns two soon, and I was delighted to find my little felt bag in a drawer during a clean-out!

I made the body of the bag during a felting day at Ms J's house probably 2 1/2 years ago, (made of grey wool and tufts of other colours), then promptly brought it home, didn't know what to do with it (how could I stop my purse and mobile phone falling out? how would I attach a handle? etc etc), put it away and forgot about it.

Then I found it the other day, and instantly thought of Phoebe who is into hand bags, big time. Was going to go look in shops for some cord to sew on, then a flash of inspiration gave me the idea of plaiting some wool and sewing that on.

Perfect for carting about dollies or teddies, don't you think?!

Anybody want to make one of these? It only takes 28 squares. Just the thing for a girl with all the scarves she needs who still wants to knit ! :)
