This is my first "real" completed project. I got the idea from a felted skull tote bag I saw, but wanted something that closed and had a flap. So, this ended up being my first project, and was also the first pattern I designed. ^_^




THe great thing about this little bag is that it's really roomy, but looks tiny! I used to carry a big messenger bag with my life in it, but managed to fit all my necessities into this one. The BEST thing about it though, it's great for shows. I don't want to carry around that big ole messenger bag when I'm at a concert, with this, my camera, cigs, bus schedules, wallet and chap stick all fit comfortably. ^_^

EDIT:, Here's the pattern for the skulls!!!! ^_^

Nah, I don't have a sewing machine. >_< But I felted it, so it's really sturdy. I was pissed though, because the white yarn I used didn't felt...and it was SUPPOSE to be 100% wool  Undecided
I wanted to post the pattern for the skulls, but I think my dad threw away all the papers I had downstairs, and it was amongst those papers. Sad I'll have to draw it back up soon, and I'll post it as soon as I do Smiley

Ah yes, the notorious non-felting white yarn.  Apparently white yarns often have felting issues--something about the bleaching process the wool goes through to make it bright white makes it less felt-able.  If you use 'natural' colored wool, this won't be a problem.  Sorry you had to learn the hard way!

That is seriously cute... kinda reminds me of a disasterous skull hat I made last winter.... Except yours is awesome and useful and mine is now un-awesome and collecting dust.

What's up with white yarn not felting? I made a purse entirely of white 100% wool yarn and put it through the machine at least ten times and nothing happened! Grrr.. it seriously put me off felting.

Thanks for all the compliments! I never heard about the unfelting white wool >_< I wish I knew this sooner, I would have just spent 3 dollars for acrylic instead of the 9 for the wool Sad BAH!
