My finished Suki bag!
I used Elann’s Peruvian Highland Wool.
All felted and ready to be used! (I was a bit silly and didn’t take photos of the pre-felted bag *pouts*)
Open from the side – she sits up nicely :o)
From the top:
Instead of sewing the handles on, I did them similar to the Booga Bag and just knotted them:
And here’s me posing with my new bag!
The colors came out fantastic, IMO. The pictures really show the colors well.
Here are the photos of my Booga Bag, pre and post felting :o)
The colors are pretty accurate of the yarn I used (Noro color 90[?]). Before it was felted, the bag measured 13″ x 13″.
This is the i-cord. I think it was about 6 feet pre felting.
This is the bag being blocked (front view). It measures 9″ high x 9″ across x 5″ wide.
This is the bag being blocked (side view).
This is the i-cord after being felted. It measures about 5 feet long.
Here is the bag all put together!
This is a side view showing the knots.
All in all, I think it came out very nicely for my first try at felting :o)
So, quite some time ago, Nick asked me to knit him a teddy bear. I had a pattern I’d gotten from the Mother Bear Project because I have some extra yarn I wouldn’t mind using up for such a charity project. I wanted to do a “test bear” first before kintting any to send off. I figured this was the perfect oppertunity to do so. I finished him Monday of last week, but kept forgetting to snap a photo of him to post. Personally, I think his head is too small and I don’t know that I like the buttons, but Nick is a doll and said he loves him and he came out perfect. What a guy!
Here he is:
