Felted Bag...Finally FO!
The felted bag just came out of the washer!! It's my first time felting, so I was extremely nervous!!! And my DH kept asking..."is it done yet, is it done yet?" so I was so happy when after three cycles I could finally say "YES"! It looks great so far. I still have to trim it down to size, sew the handles on and seam up the sides, so now I can't wait for it to dry, so I can finish it completely! As you can see...I'm so proud of myself!

That's very cute! I've only sewed them together before felting so this is neat, too!

Oh, that looks great! Can't wait to see it as a FO. The "K" on the bag is very nice.

I finally finished it!!
My first project is done! (I've finished two hats, but this was the first project I started) I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, and I've definitely learned how to correct the problems I had that I wasn't too happy about. But for my first project I thought I did a pretty good job!

Now when is that KP order going to arrive so I can start my next project?!?! :D
