Felted Marvelous Tote, Flower and Cell Case

This is the tote I fulled about 9 times. I used baking soda, vinegar, soap, etc and it's as good as it gets. It's my Marvelous tote pattern, the flower from FCEC and the Cell Case from FCEC. I also added a strand of some hand spun cotton to the bag for a few rows to add a splash of color (thanks to the tip from Stephanie!). All done with the J hook and Paton's Merino Wool in denim marl. The rose has Denim and denim marl in it.

The tote fulled down about an inch (from 9 x 11" to 8" x 10") so it did full, just not fuzzy like I liked. The cell case has a button closure instead of a snap cause I felt like it!

For some reason Photobucket won't let me in or let me see anyone elses Photobucket pics for the past few days (anyone else? Any way to solve this?), so I'll use Blogger again.

Before fulling:


After fulling:


Now, the cell phone case is great for a flip-phone, which I do not have (as you can see), not a regular skinny butted cell phone. The first person who replies that they want the cell phone case gets it, but ya have to say "Pretty Please!"

Edited: The cell phone case goes to Therese Guzman. Send me your addy Therese and I'll get it out to you!

OOHH Deneen! You are bag is simply MAHVELOUS! It is always fun to experiment! I really like the added flower, I am going to try that too!! Did you sew it on before or after?

Well I love the color of the set. Really pretty. Sorry it didn't work out for you the way you wanted, sounds like a lot of work :)

Bummer that the bag didn't felt down like you wanted, I'd be upset over that too.... and I bought some of that wool (in other colors) to make a felted bag, so now I'm all worried it won't work out rofl. I do love the color of yours though!

Deneen, you are such a busy girl! Your bag looks really pretty, I love the color. I think you have a thing for blue. Am I right? ;)
