thank you, thank you! hold the applause. :cheering:
im just kidding. i got the pattern from the highland wool felted bag pattern, but i did not do the mosaic pattern, just plain knitting throughout. the basic pattern is found in the free patterns section of KH. i am now working on the same bag but in a different color.

I am looking for a pattern for the curly wurly wool I have. Something like the one you have made. I guess I could use the same pattern.

the bag is:
width 5"
lenght 5 1/2"
height/depth(whaddya call it? you get the idea.) 2"

its kinda small and actually its slightly larger than the pattern said it would be, like maybe by an inch or so, but i think its came out pretty good!!! this isnt actually my first felted bag, but the first one i attampted i pulled outta the washer way too early, and it was still pretty un-felted, so i just gave it to my friend and didnt really count it as my first PROPERLY FELTED bag. thank you for all your great comments!! they make me feel so **s p e c i a l.**

oh yes, i forgot: i didnt even really check the bag while in the washer, i just let it go all the way through the heavy duty agitation / perm press cycle with hot wash/ cold rinse with 3 pairs of jeans. after the cycle was done i stretched it oversome books inside a ziploc bag that were the same size as the felted bag and let it dry and then took out the books and let the inside dry. i know you have probably all heard this before but i just wanted to let you know how i got it exactly like that!! THANK YOU AGAIN for all your comments!!!!!
