Here is a felted purse that I did a couple of weeks ago and then crocheted and beaded onto. The felted purse is purely felted wool, no knitting. Bits of string and color made it a little more interesting. For a handle I spun up some purple wool (2 plies) and plied that with 1 more ply (3 all together) and then knitted them into an I-Cord over the shoulder handle. This morning I attached it to the outsides of the purse. I think it's rather effective.
