Online Tapestry Crochet Class

Looking for a Christmas present or a New Year’s resolution? How about gifting or learning a new skill? Crochetville is offering several online classes, including mine that will teach how to bead and then felt the tapestry crocheted 3.5″ wide felted cell phone bag below.

The loose stitch used for felted tapestry crochet is perfect for beginners. Students need to know how to chain, slip stitch, and single crochet, but will be taught how to change colors, place beads, and felt their project in the washing machine.  These skills can then be used to create a variety of other projects – maybe even next year’s gifts! Happy holidays!

    Can you please help me? I would like to know. Just what are all of the suppies that I will need. I do know how to crochet. Thank You Judi

  2. You would need partial balls of Scarlet and Goldenrod Lion Wool (not superwash, though, or it won’t felt) and a stitch marker and 46 Red #5 Triangle beads and one heavy beading needle. You may purchase the beads and beading needle from Fire Mountain Gems if you don’t have a local supplier. You can see the beads at If you substitute other beads, make sure they are washable, because some are painted and the paint washes off.

    What a cute bag! I’ve been wanting to learn tapestry crochet for a long time. I bought your second book, but still have not had a chance to teach myself this kind of crochet, even though I have only been crocheting since I was five years old. So I just joined Crochetville to take your class and am now registered for this class. I look forward to starting! :-) Thanks for the great blog, by the way. Very much enjoy the posts and excellent photos. Inspiring!

  5. You don’t need a washing machine. You can put your piece in a bowl of hot, soapy water and squeeze it with your hands for 15 minutes, then rinse it in cold water. You can repeat the process until it has shrunk and felted enough, then wring out the water, shape it with your hands, and let it air dry.
