This circular bag is a fun adventure in felting and simple colorwork. Two circles are worked outward from the center to create a graphic sun motif. Then, the sides of the bag and strap are knit in one continuous piece and seamed to the two sun circles before felting.
Optional afterthought pockets store belongings inside the bag while a button and loop secure the top flap for a semi-circular look.
