Knit and Felted Bag

I knit a bag using 4 strands of wool yarn held together as I knit. I had a blue, a yellow and 2 off -white  colors of yarn.
This is the bag after knitting, but before felting it.
I also knit a long I-cord with 5 stitches and 4 strands of yarn held together, for the strap.
This is the result after felting it in my washing machine and adding the handle to the bag. It came out a bit shorter in height than I wanted, and a bit wider in width, but you just never know how each yarn and project will felt until after it's been washed. The sunshine has lightened the colors a bit.
The colors are more true here in this photo. Looks a bit taller hanging on the door knob (and my shoulder).
Pin It Now!
