sneak peek

Have to say that I am DELIGHTED with the way that the haekelbeutel bag has felted. The food dyed yarn did not run during the felting process, and the cream joining yarn felted equally as well as the squares. Actually, I love the way the joins are looking.

And, of course it shrank... it's now only 42cm across, still a decent sized bag... but much more practical than the whopping 53cm we started with!

So here is a sneak peek. I'm planning to add handles and a lining today. Then it will be ready to use.

Mmm, looks really great! Can't wait to see what you'll do with the handles - they were the greatest problem for me.

Looks great, it actually looks really soft and cosy. Lovely colours too, they blend really well.

Would love to see how you line it. I'm making one now, and I have a really hard time lining bags, lol.
