Felted Shoulder Bag

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.
