You can make your own feet with wine corks, cut to size, put a screw through one to insert on the inside of bag, screw into a second one on outside.

The tote is my second felting project. I knit this for a good friend. I originally purchased blue leather handles at Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool for this tote but decided against using them. The handles were purchased from Bittersweet Baskets & Handles. The pattern was free with the purchase of the handles. I came up with the handle design that I used for this bag after knitting the bag. I knit a rectangle and then from that I knit three Icord ropes ad braided them ending with a rectangle. I also added the flap after the bag was completed. I wanted to be able to close the tote. I felted by hand then felted again in my washer. The felting process took three separate washings to felt the way I wanted. I did one last toss in the washer after adding the handle and flap in hopes of felting the X’s. The fabric is for the lining not to be done by me, but someone else. I also ordered feet for the bottom of the tote. They have not arrived to date. I am pleased with the final result. I am currently crocheting a mitered square bag to be felted and I plan to use the leather handles.

ETA forgot to tell you I used Patons Classic Wool, worsted.

It's lovely! What a lucky friend.

You have inspired me to knit a similar bag to carry my notebooks to monthly meetings. I have Cascade 220 in my stash for this one. Yours is beautiful. Thanks so much.

It's lovely and looks very sturdy. Why does it need a lining? Just curious.

It really doesn’t. I do like a lining as it does give the bag a nice finished look, IMO.
