So did I already say I hate felting? Yup, I hate felting and will never do it again. Well maybe under duress or something, it just doesn't work for me.
So before I left for the cottage last week I felted this bag and let it dry over the weekend. The only knitting I did over the weekend was the drive up and the drive home. At the cottage I did this.
Today I found some appropriate
fabric in my fabric stash, yes, I have one of those too, and lined the sucker. I even found some nice red with little polka dots that might be hard to see in the photo. Because it decided not to stand up on it's own I added an iron on backing to the fabric before inserting it in the bag. Now it kind of stands up, certainly better than before. I might even use this bag.
Can you see why I hate felting? It didn't felt straight and I hate that. It seemed to deform and no matter what I did I couldn't get it back into a nice rectangular shape. I suspect but am not sure that it probably spent a few minutes too long in the washer.
New socks on needles but I may have to frog, so no picture at this time...
