I decided I needed to make my Mom a Booga bag for Mother's Day since I knew I could finish it pretty quickly, even though I'm a slooooow newbie knitter. I started it last Thursday night and finished on Tuesday! It's now felted and wrapped to be gifted today
It shrunk a bit more than I was hoping for, but I don't mind as it made SUCH a sturdy fabric. I used Patons Classic Merino for the base and bottom section and switched over to the SWS for the remainder of the bag. Once it was felted and I was blocking it, I decided to make it into more of a little tote, so I sort of fluted the edges a little bit while wet and used different handles insteado of the i-cord. I hope she loves it! She pretty much lives in khaki, denim and shades of blue, so the colors should work for her.
Here is the unfelted version. Ignore my dog's head trying to get in on the picture taking fun at the bottom of the picture
And here it is felted last night!
