When you are felting a booga bag...don't get started figuring out your next move on Scrabble! You'll get a teeny little bag. Mine is so darn cute, and the colors are festive. I think my 11 year old daughter will just love it. Sorry the camera is out of commission, I will post photos when I have a chance.:inlove:

:teehee: Actually though they are notoriously small. A lot of people have made them bigger by adding 20 stitches to everything..or so I read. ;)

LOL! I can't wait to see your bag!

I love Scrabble! Unfortunately I can't seem to find too many people who love it as much as me :shrug:

We go on Facebook and play their version called scrabulous. It's fun.

I had my friend make a booga bag as her first felted project and she found it way to small! I thought it was a bit little myself. I like a nice BIG bAg. I had her add 30 extra stitches to her next one...and it was still a bit small!Hahahaha. Just can't win.

Our little knitting group when I first started knitting did a booga bag as one of our first projects. One lady, quite an experienced knitter came in with hers and it was WAAAYY smaller than everyone else's. She'd done this cute colorwork, too.

It was cute, but instead of our bags that were maybe 8x10x3, hers was like 4x6x2. Very cute, though!

Yea mine is tiny too, it's about the size of a hardback book. The height isn't what I was surprised by, it's the width! Teeny!

Ooh I love scrabble! And OOH my sister is coming to visit and she loves scrabble! Sweet!

I have the turnstile scrabble board, it's the only way to go!

I LOVE Scrabble! No one here has the time to play though.

I added on to my Booga Bag, and it's too long. Going to do some surgery on it tomorrow.

I'm in the process of knitting one right now and I thought the bottom was a little small to be felting to the size I think it should be. I'm curious to see what it comes out like now. All of the other stuff I've felted was big going in, this already seems a little small.
