Well, here is it before:

And after felting:

Note to self: Do not felt in the washer with the same towels you washed the dog with (there is dog hair all matted in it that I have been slowly picking out)
I was really frustrated cause the first time I washed it, nothing happened, washed it again, a little, but not a lot, finally after the 3rd time it felted up nicely, I didnt think I was going to line it, but now I think it needs something to help hold its shape (it is supposed to be a square, flat bottom bag)

Oooh I really like it now it's felted! Fab colours.  Smiley

Hope I'm not teaching my grandmother to such eggs but an oblong of thick plastic/acetate is the easiest thing to pop in the bottom to keep it's shape - also easier to remove and clean than say a fabric covered card insert.
