Knitted felted bag

Wendy is new to felting and was one of the felting workshop participants. She has chosen to follow through on that and do some experimenting. You never know if you do not try. She has tried out an idea for a knitted, felted pouch. She used homespun wool, made her bag , put it in a hot washing machine for and hour and a half and here is the result. The bag has a really great texture and the knitting is invisible. The hints of pink and blue on the dove grey give it a nice artistic effect. Less is more and the simple, effective use of colour works well. She is using the pouch for her electric wheel foot peddle and cords. Karin pointed out, just to remind us, that a pouch like this would suit a tablet but you have to be careful because it might slide out too easily and it’s something you need to check. Experience is a great teacher!
