this is a pattern i got from my fiber arts teacher... its my first actual non flat knitted item! i ended up changing the way the straps are.. they were supposed to be two rope things tied onto the bag and i didnt like it, so i sort of made it up as i went along and did what i liked... i think it came out nice

its supposed to be felted but i like it the way it is .... what do you think?






thanks for looking and Happy Knitting!

I vote you felt it.  I think it looks rad as is, but I bet it will be more functional felted.  It will get much stiffer if you felt it, and that will mean it will be more sturdy as a bag. 

But it looks fabulous! Great job!

Nice! If you can still find it to be functional at a smaller size, I vote for felting as well. However, it looks like form the picture that the gauge is okay if you want to leave it as is (and BTW I've found that the looser gauge stuff felts more quickly...better friction, I guess).

Nope. the raised bit will most likely get sucked in.
