ever since i made maya's rainbow booga bag, i've dreamed of making myself a little felted rainbow iphone purse out of the malabrigo leftovers. one that is sturdy, yet small and unobtrusive - that i can wear over my shoulder, cross body style, so that i can have my phone with me at all times (does anyone else have trouble hearing their phone in their purse?). and so, based on the process of felting maya's bag...i began to calculate out (with a healthy dose of guess work, i can assure you) a little pattern to knit from. after a few failed attempts (the first two were too large), i am happy to announce that i was successful. and i am more than thrilled with the result...
an over the shoulder, cross body purse that fits my iphone like a glove. in rainbow colors, no less. i have to tell you that i haven't taken it off since i finished it. and naturally, maya now wants a 'little rainbow purse' all her own. guess who will be getting one of those larger, first attempts? :)
here it is in it's amazing large, pre-felted state (sans the long, pink i-cord strap). my goodness, felting is a crazy thing...isn't it?
i'm planning to share the pattern on ravelry and my blog shortly!
