Beautiful tote, Twisted Sista!  What yarn did you use?  I love your color combination.

Here's my latest.  I used Lamb's Pride Bulky in peacock and Noro Kureyon #40. 

Hmm... I think I need to felt it again.

I love those colors! Did you hold the two together throughout? I'm guessing so, but sometimes my brain gets scrambled.

Thanks, ilovepaper, littleone1098, bkknits29 and reenie! 

Yes, it's Lamb's Pride Bulky and Kureyon held together.  I'm tellin' ya, the Kureyon looks a lot better in person than in the photo.  Looks like watercolor painting with yarn.  I love that stuff!  My next bag will be made with the same colorway of Kureyon and L.P. Bulky in a darker blue.   

My bags don't seem to shrink much!  I guess I should throw them in the wash again.  BTW, can these felting projects be thrown in the dryer as well?

YES-
you can definitely throw them into the dryer- at least I did-
it made the felting process go much faster.

I used Kureyon #40 and Dynamite Blue Lamb's Pride Bulky for this one.  I'm addicted to making this purse!

This is my FO.  Believe it or leave it, it is from the marsupial tote pattern.



The yarn is from sweaterkits.com.  It got over-felted (guess I didn't check the washing machine often enough!) so the twisted stitches are there but impossible to see.  Also, the handles got really thick, so I trimmed them with scissors and re-felted it to soften the cut edges.

It's beautiful, ax174!  Wonderful combination of colors. 

How did you get the bottom so square?  Mine all seem kinda roundy at the bottom.

I used Araucania wool and Noro Kureyon #138 for this one.  I also made i-cord handles.  The bag looks much better in person.  It's mainly magenta, purple and red with streaks of orange, deep purple and lime green.

Sewer Rat, you are out of control with the marsupial bag!!!!! They are all great (yours and the others). I finally found a yarn store that isn't too far but I couldn't justify spending that much money on materials for a bag. *sigh*
On a happy note, I just got a job (yippee!) so in a few weeks I'll go back.
