I adore your bag!  It's great!  I'm surprised that your intarsia felted so nicely and it's not distorted.  Did your bag shrink more lengthwise that widthwise?  Beautiful colors!

Thanks for all of your compliments, they mean a lot to me!!!!

Puppymama- I used Patons Classic Merino Wool Yarns , I believe the colors used are Chestnut Brown, Worn Denim and I forget the name of the green yarn.

Broadzilla- The inside of the bag came out nice and neat. The pieces of yarn that I wove in at the end of color blocks just melted into the bag.  The only thing that I did mess up on was that I knotted some spots just because I was in a rush to felt it-so you see the knots.  But it's nice....pretty much a complete mirror image of the front with the breaks in the yarn color from where it gets twisted to change colors.  It's kinda cool though, looks like dots outlining the flower.

SewerRat- My bag shrunk more length wise.  The bag was originally about 7 inches wide and 6-61/2 inches long.
After the felting process it now measures 6 1/2 inches wide and 4 1/2 inches long.
I also think that I ran it for too long without checking on it, while it was in the washing machine.  I pretty much tossed it in and left the house.  I think it was in the machine for like 12-15 minutes.
But now I know that I have to make adjustments so I can have a bigger bag.
I'm still very pleased with my mini bag.

I'm going to work on another one soon.  I'll post that as soon as I'm done.
