so i've learned some things about felting...
the first being that stockinette edges flare during the felting process. what went into the machine looking bag-shaped came out looking... well... wonky pancake shaped. (sorry, i forgot to put the body lotion bottle next to the 'finished' product for size comparison).
the second thing i learned is that the length shrunk more than the width did. so i'll keep that in mind.
and the third thing? i think i'm a glutton for punishment because i've been working on this to felt... it'll be another bag... hopefully from what i've learned i'll be able to pull it out of the washing machine still bag-shaped.
pssst... i used Headwater Daina wool for the bag... it felts up LOVELY.
