ON-THE-GO BAG POST-FELTED

Yup, I actually felted as I said I would, she's blocked and all set. I could not find a wooden toggle/cord stop-so it was either black or white.

Final measurements were 9" tall, without handle drop and about 7" wide. As I said in my previous post, I made it a little bigger then the pattern and used about 300 or so yards (maybe a little more) of the worsted hand-dyed. I didn't sew the flower on yet and am undecided on that one.

I also got around to felting my little bowl for crystals. This used some leftover Malabrigo.

Each took two rounds in the front loader.

I'm testing a felted Hobo bag for someone on Rav using Noro Kureyon right now and then I plan to make some crocheted felted clogs (tracking down that pattern was NOT easy). Yes, spring is coming and I am working on all wool items. Ass-backwards, am I.

I have a spinning lesson in a few weeks-I have to bring the wheel and all the toys (Woolee winder, lazy kate, full bobbins I plan to try to use the niddy noddy to wind up so I can start fresh), the original bobbins, etc., so she can show me how it all works. The woman teaching me deals in Ashford and mine is a Schacht, so it's probably better I bring my own. At least it forces me to uncover it, clean it off and get it set up-motivation is what I needed I guess and nothing like forced motivation :)

I love that bag! The colors really pop. I don't think I'd do the flower, but that's just me.

I just made matching big-and-small felted bowls for potpourri, and have my eye on another felted bag (no wool in my stash though!) so don't be too hard on yourself about the whole wool-in-spring thing.
