FO: Felted "Rock Star Bag"
Hi there! This is my first bag and I am sooo happy with the way it turned out! I don't feel that the pictures do justice to the orange, orange-yellow and navy blue colors that I picked...but...it's okay, lol.

The pattern is free from DIYNetwork.com (http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/na_kni...813531,00.html). I used Galway worsted wool yarn and sizes 7 and 9 needles. The Swiss darning (duplicate stitch) technique for the colorwork was really fun!

I'm attaching 3 pictures...one of the bag before felting, and two afterwards. :D

That is beautiful! I've been wanting to make one, but I can't seem to find the pattern they used for the duplicate stitch. Where did you find yours?
