Hey guys! :waving: I finally got around to felting my bag. It was my first time felting anything, besides a swatch. I'm really happy how it turned out and I want to felt more!!!!! :cheering:
Here's a before picture(click to make bigger):

I think a bag was great for a first felt project. And the joining two color strands together was like magic, felting by hand. Check out Amy's video on it.

And another FO:

That is so cool
Wow, I love the pattern and the shape and everything. Its so nice to see a GOOD-LOOKING felted bag. I went looking through patterns FOREVER before i found any good ones. Can you believe that there are THAT many ugly bags in the world? Anyway, It looks awesome.
Where did you get the pattern?

MaleKnitter- I got this pattern from Lion Brand. I did change it a bit, because I only wanted one strap, not 2.

Sue- I used Lion Wool :)

The bag looks great. I'm working on my first felting project and am itching to get to the felting part.
