I don't know what it is, I've been on a felted bag kick lately.  Crazy.


Bag prefelting.  The colors are a little off, but hey.  Pretty.



Size comparison.  Didn't shrink a WHOLE lot; it mostly grew horizontally, which was a surprise since the last time I felted Noro it grew more vertically.  Weird.


And the whole thing finished.  I decided to use the purl side out, at least for now.  Might add a closure... not sure.  The handle is i-cord made out of SWTC Karaoke.  It felted really nicely!

I'm not entirely happy with it; I think I need to give it a good soak and block it some more.  I didn't catch it while it was still wet enough, last night.  But overall, it works, so I'm pleased.

I too, have been afflicted by the felted bag bug! I started crocheting one day and the next thing I knew I had 15 little pouches.

I love the rainbow/chakra color scheme in this bag. I think I'd add a closure as I always lose stuff when I have an open bag. But then, I have never met a purse, pocketbook, or bag that I can't outgrow.

You did a great job on this. I love the way it turned out.

yeah, especially with no lining this one tends to get a bit floppy.  I need to re-block it before I make a closure though; I'm thinking magnetic snap, I kind of love those.

thanks for all the compliments  Smiley

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.
