felted bag

This is a new bag I just finished knitting and felting and I am really pleased with it. It turned out so nice. It is a clutch and I made it for a gift so I am really glad it came out well. I think one of the things I like best about it is that it dried into such a nice shape. I think that had a lot to do with the fact the shaping is well prepared before shrinking. The bottom is sewed into shap and then the flap is added within a certain section which forms a very nice trangle.
