FO--Noro felted bag
Well, my little experiment didn't turn out the way I hoped. I'm sure I'll find a use for the bag anyway...but this isn't the shape I anticipated. At least the colors are pretty!

Well, no matter how many felted bags I make, I can't seem to get it through my head to make it lots taller than I think is needed. The height always seems to shink disproportionately more to the width. I know that and yet I STILL make the same mistake.

Which Noro is that?? 152? It looks like my Booga colors in the unfelted but not in the felted picture. I really like it!!

The colors are beautiful. Looks like you could fit some needles and a skein of yarn in the bottom!

Yep, it will definitely hold some yarn and needles!!

You were close on the color...it's 154. My digital camera broke so I've had to resort to taking stills with our camcorder instead...not as good on the colors as my regular one!

I think that's what I used...that WOULD be a good yarn/needle holder!!

You need some cute tassels to hang off the corners of the flap and then maybe make some kind of funky closure and it would be really chic. I think it is adorable!!
