Felted Knitting Project Bag

These are photos showing before and after felting. It started out looking so huge, but did felt down into a manageable size for a shoulder sized tote. I lined the inside with 100% cotton print fabric and added a special buckle to the strap. The buckle belonged to my paternal great grandmother and the woman I credit with planting and nurturing the seeds of creativity in me from a very early age. I'm happy with the results of my first large felting project and just couldn't help sharing.

That is absolutely beautiful! I love the look of the lining and your idea of putting the buckle on too. Now I really, really want one. Hmmmm, maybe we will have to call our knitting group The Knitting Bags. Pun intended!
