Oh wow! It looks WONDERFUL! I really do LOVE the colorway, too! I have one Booga that has a bit of stitch definition remaining, but since the bag is sturdy enough for 'a bag'...I left it as is! If it had been a felted bowl, or clogs, I would have given it another go in the washer. But I think a Booga Bag with a little stitch definition is cool! Personality! Or shall I say "pursenality"!?

Great job! Thanks for sharing!

I actually like the fact that you can see some of the stitch still. It gives it a very unique feel, and more visual texture than if it didn't have it. It's kind of like you managed to "knit hazy."

It's beautiful JDee! I love the booga bag! I actually found that pattern somehow back before I even knew how to knit, and really wanted one...

which brings me to SweetOceanBlue's comment - you could totally do the booga bag if you have even a little experience - it was my very first project that I did, and since it's felted it hides little mistakes really well. I love mine, and still use it a lot.

Jdee,

Beautiful bag! I am partial to this pattern because I've made quite a few of these bags...given most of them away as gifts.

I wrote a "how-to" blog post last fall, if anyone is intimidated by the felting process.

Again, wonderful job! Love those colors!!!
