Felted Stained Glass Fan Bag



The knit pattern is $8.00. Please, use the Paypal "Shopping Cart" button. The pattern is sent as a .pdf usually within 24 hours. To use a check, money order, for a hard copy of the pattern, or for other information e-mail me at knittingdream@hotmail.com
The "Felted Stained Glass Fan Bag" is beautiful and unique! The bags shown were made using Noro "Kureyon" which is a variegated yarn with beautiful colors variations. The bag can be made with any wool that felts. The bottom of the bag looks like a stained glass window!

It is hard to put down my knitting when I'm making one of these bags because I enjoy seeing the color changes and each bag is different. The bag is pretty before it's felted and always surprises me when they come out of the washer because the bags are even prettier than when they went in. The pattern contains instructions for 2 versions of the bag. Version 1 is taller and Version 2 is shorter. Version 1 is shown with a knit tube at the top which is optional.The bag is made from the top down in rounds. Each fan is made individually and joined as you knit. The diagrams used in the pattern are pictures. The bag looks more complicated than it is and once you get the "hang of it" you will not want to put your knitting down! No matter what brand of wool is used, each bag will be unique.

Dimensions after felting: 11"tall, 14" across and a 9" round bottom. ...Can be felted to a smaller size, 10" high, 12" across the top tapering down to 10" with a 7 1/2" round bottom.

I love your story and your bag looks amazingly beautiful! Congratulations on your new blog ;-)

Jeri said...

One of my Sisters of the Wool found your blog and your stained glass bag pattern. Made me say oooh. Does the pattern buyer get both bag versions? What are the flowery circles in the bottom two pics? Is that part of the bag?

Madeline said...

Yes, the pattern buyer would get both bag versions. The "flowery circles" are the bottom of the bags.

I'm another of Jeri's Sisters of the Wool, and I found you the same way she did. These bags are amazing! I'm bookmarking your site for when I've finished half a dozen other projects. And I'm looking forward to seeing what else you come up with!

Prayerful Knitter - Shelly said...

May I ask what th edimensions are of this bag? It is SO pretty!

Madeline said...

Hi Prayerful knitter/Shelly,
The dimensions that I have for the bag are 11" to 13 1/2" tall, 14" across and a 9" round bottom.
I use a small popcorn can to shape the bag while it is wet. I also flatten the bottom of the bag to the bottom of the can.
You can felt the bag to a smaller size if you wish.

Barbara said...

I saw your pattern on Ravelry and want to know how many skeins of Noro did you use for your bag?

Madeline said...

Hi Barbara,
I will be happy to let you know the yarn yardage. Which pattern?
Madeline

Madeline said...

Opps, I'm sorry Barbara I just noticed that you want the yarn information for the "Felted Stained Glass Fan Bag".
Version 1: 6 skeins Noro "Kureyon" of different color numbers.
2 skeins black Lamb's Pride Worsted.
Version 2: 5 skeins Noro "Kureyon" all the same color number.
1 skein black Lamb's Pride Worsted. I had 2 yards of a skein left when I was finished, so I would buy 2 skeins of black just in case you run out.
The bag can be made with any wool that felts.

I love this bag! It is really beautiful. I've been using Noro Kureyon to make tapestry crochet bags lately, and just as you say, I love watching the colors change. I'm looking forward to getting a pair of circular needles and trying this bag. Thanks so much for posting it.

I would love to take a poll....

Knit handles vs. purchased handles?

Lined vs. unlined?

I just purchased your pattern. Will it show up in my Ravelry files?

Donna Rose said...

I purchased the pattern, not in my ravelry files or email, emailed you and no answer. Disappointed!

I just ordered a stained glass felted purse pattern, Diane Cook. My e-mail address is jdcook@newwavecomm.net. I didn't notice where it asked for that information. Thank you, Diane
