Makes me think of my first felting experiment last year....I bought this really pretty yarn, and was so excited to make the booga bag. I worked and worked on it, and finally finished it. I put it in the washer on hot, and let it run for a full cycle. It finished, and I was really excited to see what it looked like! I took it out, and I swear it had gotten a little bigger than it was before. I didn't know what I did wrong, so I decided to research felting. I discovered it has to be wool or a wool blend to felt. I went and looked at my yarn label: 100% acrylic Now I have this ginormous unfelted acrylic booga bag!
