ETA: Here it is shaved, buttoned, and with  my stuff in it.

how do you shave a bag?
I tried to shave it with one of those sweater pill shavers, but these white fluffies were really stuck down. So I had to use my husband's disposable razor. I'm really glad he wasn't home or he would have made so much fun of me.

I started mine last night. Forgot to take pics, but will do so tonight!

I'm using Cascade 220 in orange, and might throw in a few yellow stripes with leftovers from my stash.

I finished my sidekick the other night and put the button on today. I wasn't able to get pics up, but I will try in a few days. I used up some of my own hand spun. It kinda felted a little weird but it still looks pretty good! I haven't finished a project in a while so this was a nice little project to do!

I'm almost done mine! I just need to finish the handle and the flap, and then throw it in the wash to felt.

Everyone's bags look great so far!  I can't wait to see more.   Smiley

After numerous mishaps (including my wonderful JoAnn's circular needle breaking, argh!) I finally finished mine.

I decided to go with the yellow tweed, and use the galway grey for the back to school vest from fitted kits.  I was really nervous about using up the yellow cus I had a feeling I wasn't going to like the result.  It actually turned out better than I expected.  Here it is laying flat: 

Drying on top of my bunny's playhouse.  The color is really washed out here.

And a shot of the back.  You can still see some vertical lines, but I decided to live with it instead of risking it shrinking too much.  I think it's the perfect size, and the lines aren't as noticeable on the front. 

The tweed flecks are red, blue, and green.  Now I just need to find a button...I think a dark-ish wood one will look good. 

Yay!  Yellow makes me happy.   Cheesy

Love the bag. The yellow is really pretty. I am always "afraid" to buy yellow yarn because I am not ever sure that I will like how it turns out! Great job!

I love that yellow yarn with the flecks in it!!  Your sidekick looks great!

funkyhooker I love your bag!

I started one in Paton's SWS Natural Earth that I had in my stash.  I have 2 balls, hope that is enough!  I'm about half way through it, and its going very well.  I could easily have this done in a day if I only had more time!  I can't wait to see more pics of everyone's Squatty!  I'll post mine when finished.  Roll Eyes

Here is a pic of my Squatty Sidekick. I used my own handspun wool. It was the first real yarn that I had spun, so needless to say that it was a little uneven to work with! But it felted like a dream!
