I did a little felting experiment. I think it turned out okay. I wrote everything down so that I can make some changes to the design next time. The handle needs to be a little wider and maybe a little shorter. Going by the general rule of thumb that crochet felts more lengthwise than widthwise kind of screwed me up a little. I didn't get the 80% shrinkage lengthwise that I had written down from a previous swatch. I think that, when felting crochet, a lot depends on the stitch. Single crochet felts differently than half-double or double crochet would.
Here's the bag pre-felted.
And here it is drying on the line. I have it stuffed with a soccer ball and some plastic bags. Direct sun is probably not a good idea, but Hooray, the sun is shining!!
As long as no birds poo on it, I think the project can be considered a success! The color is "lemongrass" which is actually greener than the grass today. I hope this bag sells at a local show this weekend. If not, look for it in my Etsy shop next week, with more to follow.
