Grab & Go Bag Before and After felting. Stem and leaf are not felted and added after felting.
Our present K.A.L. is the Creative Knitting design “Grab & Go Bag”. It is a sweet little felted bag using Cascade 220
Peruvian highland wool yarn. The sample shown in the Before and After
photo is made with Cascade Pastaza yarn. The design is worked in the round from the top to the bottom, and then finished with a 3-needle bind off. The decorative stem and leaf is not felted, but sewn onto the bag after it has fully dried from the felting process. The final size of the sample shown is roughly 9 1/2″ by 9 1/2″. It is a perfect bag for your mini-iPad or Nook or Kindle, or cell phone and keys. The Grab & Go Bag K.A.L. ends next Wednesday with a felting party at a local laundromat. Everyone will learn techniques of felting using a washing machine. Stay tuned for the next K.A.L. which will be the Laughingbird Scarf
