This is the "summer weight" version of the felted sling bag from A Second Treasury of Magical Knitting.
I used Cascade 220 for the MC and Noro Kureyon as the CC.

Now, I knew the yarns would probably felt differently before I started..
I didn't realize that the Cascade would felt so much faster than the Kureyon.  Live and learn, right?
I had to let it keep felting so that the Kureyon would felt more, but this meant that the Cascade kept felting... and shrinking.  Now the bag part of it is a a weee bit smaller than I would like.  I'm hoping that gravity will help me.
Yeah, I could have tugged and stretched more while I was blocking, but oh well..
Overall, I'm pleased with it.  I just need to wait for it to get a little bit cooler out.  A wool purse in 90 degree weather isn't very fun.

I love how wide the strap is. Your color choice is awesome too. I just finished a bag using some left over lamb's pride and some noro. I also knew they'd felt way different, but the colors happened to be perfect together. By the time I was done it ended up being a tiny clutch. I still love it though, even if my original idea was for it to be twice the size it ended up.

I agree that wide strap just "makes" the purse!

Your bag is beautiful.   You've motivated me to make one!  I've done the moebius baskets and kinda forgot I wanted to make the purse.  I love the colors, great job!

thanks. Smiley
I too love the super wide strap.  That's partially why I wanted to make this bag so much.

Your bag turned out smashing...super color combo...it's perfect!  I checked out the book from the library and have been yearning to try one of the felted bags.  Now I think I definately will.  Thanks for the inspiration!

I recently found Cat Bordhi online and went out and ordered her books from Amazon, as I loved her free patterns online (www.catbordhi.com). I bought yarn to try the Island Embrace Afghan, and it's on my list of to-do things. I also printed out this bag to do as well, and looking at how nicely it was finished here makes me want to tackle it even more!!
