I saw a knitted bag that was felted and fell in love with it. I wanted to make a bag for myself in crochet so I designed my own. The bags that I have made vary in size. Below are pictures of items I have felted.

Felted Slippers- these were crocheted and then I dyed the wool and felted them. I was trying to give them a tie-dye look.
These are Felted Slippers made from 100% wool that I crocheted, dyed and then felted.
The cat on the left was made using the same pattern as the cat on the right. I used wool yarn and then felted the cat in the washer. He was promptly snatched up by my youngest daughter and is enjoying his life in her room.
The above bag was made from some old 100% Red Heart wool and some other "mystery wool" This one shrunk alot!!

Felted hat made with 3 strands of very thin yarn held together. This hat will keep you warm.
Story behind this hat.... I found a bag of wool and a pair of knitting needles at a thrift store for $4.00. I thought the yarn looked very thin but could be worked with. I decided to make this fulled hat with this yarn, starting out went well but as I got deeper and deeper into the ball the yarn kept breaking. I was getting worried as to whether my hat would stay together when I washed it. I finished the hat and put it in the washer and hoped for the best. It came out wonderful. I fit it to my head as I was fulling it in the washer and when it was done I dried it over the top of a bowl. It came out wonderful. You cant even tell this item was crocheted, it looks amazing. I still have a couple of balls of yarn left over and a pair of knitting needles too. What a great purchase!!!
This bag was made with 2 strands of worsted weight help together. Eyelash yarn was added in and it did not felt which gave this bag a very fuzzy look. The handle was made with a large I-Cord knitter and I held a strand of each color plus a strand of eyelash yarn together.
Made with one strand of yarn held through out. The handles are knit in I-cord.
This one used a lot of chunky weight yarn, one strand held throughout. It is very large bag and the handles were made by single crocheting with 2 strands held together and then slip stitching in each chain across.
This bag is my tribute to the 70's, I love all of the colors in this bag and at the top I added some eyelash yarn so it is really fluffy. The handles were made the same as the pink bag.
