Felted Wallet

My latest knitting project is a cute felted wallet. I haven't ever felted anything before, but it turned out really neat and I can't wait to knit up something else to felt. Felting works the best when you knit with a 100% wool yarn.  After you;re done knitting you throw it in the washing machine with some towels on hot. Let the piece air dry.  I added the button and used a blanket stitch to embellish the wallet.  Next time I'll remember to take some before shots so you can see how felting changes the piece.

  1. This is really cute! I made a purse that I felted for my friend and it turned out really nice. Too bad I didn't think of making a matching wallet!
