Beautiful Felted Bag Patterns to Knit and Love!



I’m Lauren Loeffler, the “Fearless Felter”, a fiber artist living and working in Bucks County PA. I’ve been knitting for 25 years and started machine felting knitted woolen handbags in hot water several years ago. It’s a combination of art and science! I began to design my own patterns and currently have 15 original designs you can knit, felt and custom embellish to your liking. My beautiful printed patterns are designed by my friend Mindy, graphics genius and artist in her own right.

I teach classes on both knitted bag and needle felting. Having taught myself to needle felt dolls at about the same time, combining both techniques was the next logical step. Needle felting allows you to create great detail, texture and layers of color. The surface of the bag becomes your “canvas”, and needle felting, all done by hand, allows the artist to create simple or elaborate scenes or pictures in wool fleece combined with purchased objects like buttons, ribbons, beads and jewelry findings. The freedom the medium allows creates an “anything is possible” attitude and is really fun. Take a look at the possibilities on other pages on the site!
