Brave Felted Tote Bag

Brave Felted Tote Bag
Brave Felted Tote Bag

"This is a super simple project of single crochet in the round. The bag has a flat bottom which makes it super functional for so many purposes! It begins at the base, and is worked in one continuous piece from base to handles - no sewing! Use it for a craft project bag, a special gift bag, or a decorative storage container. It would make a great market bag - and if you line it, you could totally rock it as a purse, too! Stripes, color blocking or monochromatic in one color, use 3 balls of Be So Brave Yarn in any combination that appeals to you, or your gift recipient."

This is a nice bag but Im trying to understand why its necessary to felt this bag. Granted that it does call for a large hook (size K), the entire project is still only worked in Single Crochet. I would guess that felting would shrink the fabric so small items wouldnt fall through, but the designer also suggests using a liner to accomplish the same thing. Its a nice bag though, and would work just as well without the felting.
