Second felting project
I had so much fun with the felted scarf that I decided to make a felted bag. I got Lion Brand Wool yarn and crocheted a square. Oh, I added Moonlight Mohair yarn, too, for a little sparkle. After I got it all crocheted, I felted it in the washing machine, which is much easier than doing it by hand. Except, and this is a big except if you want a symmetrical bag, there isn't much control over how the shape comes out. Mine came out with a really cool wavy edge. I love it. Not everyone would. But I was doing this just for fun, just to relax while we watched American Idol (a show I hate, but my husband insists on watching!!). This was a lot of fun, very quick, and tomorrow I'll be getting more wool yarn and making a larger wall hanging.
Sorry for the crummy picture, but it's late, I have to go to work in five hours, and I'm rushing. As usual.
