I Just Gotta Felt!

I have totally been bitten by the felting bug. Here are some progress pics of my first Noni Market Bag, the mini one. I knitted it up fast last night...

...so I could do the felting today! Here it is right out of the washer and ready for blocking and drying.

Blocking it. Hey, a use for plastic shopping bags! There is a reason I've been hoarding them!

I'll include pics of the bottom showing the 'ridge' for structure, because that's the sort of detail picture I always want to see when I start a project. Although, I'm making no promises that I did it 'right'!

Before felting:

After felting:

Right or not, I love the way it turned out!

Right is what works for you. Looks "right" to me!

Your new bag looks great, and it looks like the white Cascade is no trouble at all to felt. I have a furry pink spider decoration that might work on that...just kidding!! I hope your flowers come out just the size you need. Maybe mine isn't felted enough.
