It's me again...

I took some pictures of THE bag post felting. I ran into a few problems in that area. I ran it through once and everything had begun to felt except of course the very light, nearly white aran color. I thought about just leaving it that way but was afraid of things poking out, so I did a test with a pen and yup it had to go one more time. I took a deep breath and threw it back in. I was shocked when I came back to it to find that it shrank a lot, but I love the shape of it and (as if this is possible) it's more pretty now than it was before.



The shape of the bag is great. In order to keep the top together I'm going to sew in a zipper instead of just a snap so the top will keep a super straight line, and let the bottom kind of fluff or balloon out like it does.
