Made this with Lamb's Pride Bulky and added the I-Cord/Button latch for a little more security.

very nice bag. Really like the I-cord/button detail. How big is it?

It's about 12 X 14 inches. Not too small but not too big either.

That is a pretty bag. Do you know how much it shrunk when it was felted? I just wondered how much you had to knit to get it that big when felted. It is unique. :cheering:

It is unique

Very true! It looks great. My color choice would be green or purple, but the yellow looks good.

It was pretty big but I kept an eye on it in the wash and probably didn't felt it as much as I do some other things. I think the size is about right for the pattern though considering some of the other ones I've seen on Ravelry. I ended up using two skeins of Lamb's Pride bulky if that helps.

Yes, that gives me an idea. It was a lot of knitting, but I am sure that it was well worth it to you. I like the yellow, also.
