Looks great Jeanie! :grin:

That seems odd that it did not shrink when felted - it may not be truely felted yet. How long did you felt it for? Can you still see individual stitches? If you are happy with how it turned out you can just leave it, but if not you can try felting it some more. Looking forward to finished pictures.

That is such a cute picture of your dd. Good luck getting those clothes clean!

I love the colors that you made your booga bag. I agree with the previous poster - you may want to try to run it through the wash again if you want it to be more like "felt". I had to wash one of mine 3 times before it came out the way I wanted it. If you do try again make sure that your water is really hot and put your water level on small load. Throw a pair or 2 of jeans in and it should come out more felted. If you love it that way that is great too!

Lucky you. :rollseyes:

Having seen the bag in progress, I can easily see why you don't want it to shrink anymore. When you go to do another one, might I suggest trying a different yarn? I have done two with Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Bulky that turned out nice and thick and sturdy post-felting. I can't remember off the top of my head how (or if) I modified the pattern for these, but I can check my notes if you want to know.

I love the color! My dad lives in Japan and can get Noro yarn for about half the price you can buy it here. He's sending me some!! Must of the colors of the Noro they have on the site he buys it from are colors they don't sell in the states.
