Discussed earlier, I finally have pics of my mini Sophie bag. I still have to add a magnetic snap, but you can't see it anyway.

Before Felting


After Felting


I love this bag, I love this yarn (Classic Elite Paintbox).

It's a mini version of the Sophie bag from Black Sheep bags, also on Magknits.

I could have sworn I wrote down what I did... my notes are probably on my pattern at home. I know that I cast on 24 instead of 39 and also did fewer rows on the bottom and up the sides, otherwise I followed the pattern.

ETA: I used larger needles too, since the yarn was thicker. I can share all that info. later if anyone is interested.

Cute. I love that pattern. It's one of my favs. I hadn't thought of making a smaller one. I like little bags even better. The yarn you used is great. It's so pretty.

I don't know how the handles were supposed to go, and my grafting sucked, but it all felted prettily and the mistakes disappeared.

I love that yarn! I only had the 1 ball, so it had to be a mini bag.

I am forever stuck with one ball of yarn so I love tiny projects. I also love felting for the reasons you mentioned. If you knit or seam a little funny in spots, it doesn't matter. The felting makes it disappear!

thank you so much for the link to the pattern.  I had never seen it before.  I think I'll try the big one to see how it all fits together and then experiment and try making it smaller.  I'm so excited.

My friend made one and it looks great too- she did the version that you can see on the Yarn Harlot's website.
