FO: Felted Bag
This is my latest project, a felted bag. Before felting;




And afterward. I should not have left it in so long. The pocket measured 6x4. Now it is 4x2. That is a size 9 /16"circular needle.




It was so hairy when finished. I used my husbands hair clippers to shave it. If you look close you can see that it still needs more work.

I'm sorry it "stayed in too long," but what an adorable (hairy) little bag. Don't worry. You'll get it shaved down to perfection soon.

Really cute, cute bag. I think different wool yarn comes out differently. Some felt really quickly and others seem to take forever. She looks good after her "shave" though!
