Hello I don't know if this is where I post this I think it is
...ok well I'm going to attempt making my own felted purse/bag without a pattern...I couldn't find one that I really liked so I'm going to give it a go and make up my own pattern.
So I made a swatch just regular stockinette stitch 3 inches (W) x 3 inches (H) 10 stitchs by 11 rows. I felted the square and it shrank to 2 3/4 inches x 2 inches. NOW this is were I need help because I'm just plain stupid
when it comes to math and such.... I want the FINISH
bag, already felted, to be about 12 inches wide and 9 inches high (I'm not worried about the depth or the strap). So does that mean (PREfelted) it should measure about 13 inches wide and 12 inches high???
If I'm TOTALLY
wrong someone PLEASE HELP ME
