Welcome to Cultured Purl, where we offer classy hand knit patterns for felted purses and totes, and other accessories. Our goal is to make items that are both beautiful and practical.
Knitting involves a lot more than sweaters and scarves. You can make stylish bags and purses to carry your knitting and lots of other stuff, for work and for play.
If you haven't tried felting, it is well worth the effort. You create a dense and strong fabric that is suitable for purses and totes, as well as other items such as baskets and decorations. All you need is your home washing machine and a sense of adventure. This is where knitting truly becomes fun.
