Flat Bottom Bag- After Felting

Much awaited... after felting comparison of the original Flat Bottom Bag! The center purple bag is the same as my first blog posting... the other purple one shows the after felting size. The blue one is also the same size. If you recall, these bags were made with Lamb's Pride Bulky. I like that this yarn doesn't shrink so much. But, I think there is a combination of things happening here... The yarn is bulky weight--- heavier than the others I have tried so far... also, the blue loom is a slightly finer gauge than the yellow loom... so the knit is tighter.
Just my thoughts.. The daisies really aren't that big... it's all in the perspective.
Sizes...
Pre-felted- 4 1/2" high, base 2"x 3 1/2"
Felted - 4" high, base 1 1/2" x 3"

    There is quite a difference in the sizes when felted, but you know what. I like the looks of the non-felted little purse. I keep saying I am going to get into felting but it will only be for hubby things. I hate the feel of it for myself. Nice work you are doing.

    Thanks! I don't find the the felted things feel bad... I hate the feel of felt that comes in sheets from the store... but I like this kind... and I am finding that it's way softer than I thought it would be. In the past I thought all wool was itchy... but I'm not finding that to be the case with knit items that are felted. Well, unless the yarn feels itchy to start with! :-)
