This is my first attempt at felting something I knit. The pattern is The “Don’t Worry” Felted Shoulder Bag by Catherine Hughes. The yarn is a blend of Bernat Pebblespun (deep teal color) from my estate sale stash and Rowan Kidsilk Haze (black). I forgot to measure the bag after I finished knitting and before felting it. After felting it measured about 10 in X 12 in.
To make the strap more stable I pulled a strip of woven strapping through and machine stitched it in place where it attached to the bag. I made one end “free” with a key
The bag is lined. The magnetic closure is one I “harvested” from an old purse.
