I found some old 100% wool yarn at my thrift store.  Having never tried felting I thought that this yarn (having cost me $.75) would be perfect.  I used this pattern http://www.helloyarn.com/miniskulltote.htm.  This is also the first intarsia I've done.  I really like the way the felting hides some of the imperfections in my working of the design.

standing, after felting

flat, after felting, about 6" tall

flat, before felting, about 10" tall

eww, the insides

(The after felting pictures of the skull look warped only because it is not standing or laying flat.)

Aww, that's really cute! I love that green.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

The northern downpour sends its love.

This is so neat! I love the white/sage green color combo. I wish I had thought to use salvage yarn for my first felted project! Your intarsia turned out great!

Extrapolate that!

That is a really cute bag!  I want to make it, but I'm scared of intarsia...
