I started this bag last June and had just the i-cord to do for the longest time. I decided with the new year that I had to finish all my WIPs. So I did it! My first i-cord and my first felting. I have a front loader and it went through at least 6 cycles before I was happy with it. ugh But I think it turned out really cute!

Well done! What are the finished measurements? I'm looking for a bag to knit, but want one that is on the bigger side...

It is cute, and I love the colors also.

A Booga Bag is on my list, along with all the other 'on my list' things.

Really nice. I enjoyed making it and my wife still uses it 2 years later.

It's beautiful!! I have a front-end washer too.....felting takes forever!! I find that it works better if I have lots in the washer with it. It's worth a try.

PS - I love your resolution.....I should try that too :)

I'll have to try with more jeans next time. I put it in with 2 pairs. At first I put it in a zipped pillow cover. Then after a few times through, I put it in a mesh bag.

Hi Kristinw
I am just finishing off my very first Booga Bag...I did the I-cord last night while I was at work. I am very nervous at felting...It is my first time and I am scared it will be ruined!!! I have a front load washing machine so once it's in it will have to stay put until the cycle is finished!!!! I also used Noro Kureyan but cant remember the shade, It's mostly reds and purples.

Great colors! These bags are fun to make.

How long did you make the I-cord before felting? I'm working on one for my own bag (not a booga bag, per se), and I've estimated that because the yarn I'm using shrinks in length by one-half, I'll need 8-10 feet! Does this seem outrageous?

I have done my I-cord 6 feet long.

Mine was as tall as me - 5 feet.

I was very scared! Then I got a bit frustrated that I had to run it through so many times. But now I am over my first time felting woes!

Did you do it yet?
