The Nashville Tote is a beautiful felted shoulder bag with three strap options, an attached felted strap (shown in first photo), a removable leather strap (shown in third photo) or a felted strap attached with metal rings to add a bit of interest (shown in bottom photo). Three rows of ruffles added to the front give this sturdy felted bag a fun and feminine look. The Nashville Bag is perfect when you have to tote lots of stuff and want to look good too!

The Nashville Tote is fun to knit and it is amazing to see it transform from an oddly shaped piece of knitting into a beautiful ruffled purse after a few minutes in the washing machine! This purse is great in a basic go-to color like charcoal gray or make one in a fun bright color to go with a special outfit. I hope you enjoy creating yours☺

If you wish to line your bag:

Heavy duty interfacing
magnetic closure

Optional materials:
leather strap with attached d-rings - length depends on how long you would like your bag to hang, a 24" strap makes for a good shoulder bag, a longer strap would be needed for a cross-body bag
