Felted Bags
Hello!

This was my first time felting, and It was awesome! With the help of this great forum, I was able to finish both bags with very little frustration.

My husband saw them and said, "why did you go buy new bags?" I told him that I had made them and he said, "they look like you bought them, good job!" Coming from him , that's a great compliment!

Excellent bags. A true positive testament to your hard work that your husband thought they were store bought. I especially like the colors in the bag on the left.

Yeah, it was was my first time ever working with Noro. The colors were really neat, but I sort of missed making my own stripes!
