Basking in the sun. Project on Rav here.
This bag was unlike other felted projects I've made. This bag is knit with 2 strands of chunky yarn held together throughout and then lightly felted. Man alive, did I have a time felting this puppy! Here's a pic pre-felted.
2 cycles through the Wonder Washer:
2 cycles through the front loader with a few pairs of old jeans for extra agitation, another cycle in the Wonder Washer and finally, stretched out over a garbage can to dry.
The final project turned out ok. I would have liked some areas to felt a little more and the strands of the colorwork area are not as I had hoped on the interior but a nice lining will help. Luckily there are 2 pockets on the sides as prior to gifting to my mom last night, 6 year old son gifted her sixteen cents and she had nowhere to put it! Happy Birthday, Mom! I hope you enjoy your bag and the sixteen cents!
