My First Felt

Here is my first felting project! It's not exactly like I pictured it - and I think it was supposed to have 2 handles but I must have went wrong somewhere - I like it with only one handle though! I thought it was pretty good for a first try at making a bag and at felting! :) I did this while we were on vacation. Jodie - this the one I used my needles for! ;) The ruler is a 6 inch ruler. I didn't realize how much it shrunk up until after I looked at the pictures. It was fun! I'm going to look for a bigger version of this pattern so I can get a bigger bag out of it. :)

Did you make the bag on the top too? is that the same bag but you did the felting? I guess I really don't know what felting is! Looks cute. I like bags too and purses and shoes now that I think of it. lol Have a great weekend guys. Miss you. Aunt Dar

That's pretty cool - and the end result was definitely girly. :)

I love it Risa!! I sort of wish I could knit but I have just way too many other crafts I'm into to really learn....I've "learned" twice before with very bad results. ;)
