Felted Bag

From an issue of Inspirations (Issue 53), I thought I would try to make a felted bag.
A really easy pattern to follow on circular needles. I found this felt wool from Idee in Wilmersdorf. It knitted up really quickly...then I left it sitting there for a couple of weeks before I was brave enough to throw it in the washing machine.

Today I washed it, and this is how it turned out. Now I just have to wait for it to dry, and I can make a lining for it. I have some bamboo handles to finish it off, and a couple of magnetic clips to keep it shut. I think I will add a couple of pockets into the lining for my mobile etc. At the moment, it is a bit fluffy, so I will use a razor to shave off a bit of the excess!
