I've never felt like this before.......

Sorry for the pun but I am quite pleased with my efforts. I have just made up (designed?) a pattern for a bag and it worked. I have to say the photographs aren't the best but they will give you the idea. I made two circles in crochet. Sewed them together and put them in the washing machine. I then made a lining and sewed on a button (which I don't like but I wanted to see it worked.)What I like about it is that with the straps on the shoulder it sits nicely under my arm which is how i like to carry my handbag.

very cute!
Isn't it the BEST feeling when the idea works?

Wonderful. I much prefer the colours after felting though. Do you think crochet felts better than knitting or about the same?

What wool did you use for this? I like both the idea of the bag and the variation in the threads colours.

It was a Wendy wool, I think, next time I am in the store I will check.

It was Wendy Fusion and the colour was Bouquet Garni.
