My Lucy bag
I used yarn I bought at an Indian Trading Post in Northern Arizona. The pattern is from Two old bags. I felted it twice....The first time, of course was larger but i wanted a heavier feel to the bag body. I just picked random colors I liked. When it was finished I realized it reminded me of a blanket I had when I was little! I guess that is where the colors came from!
