This week, my project included felting!
My friend has been making these great, felted tote bags and is now making a Japanese knot bag (on my Ravelry list of many projects to do).
I decided to make a small, felted project bag.
I chose to make Puk Vossen’s Mortarde tas bag (free pattern on Ravelry).
My color choice was inspired by Ravelry member Mellifico’s bag.
I used Patons Classic Worsted Wool in Sunset Gold and Cream.
Due to my newness at knitting, where I picked up stitches (to start knitting in the round) was rather sloppy.
So, I chose to do a reverse single crochet all around the seam (otherwise known as the crab stitch).
Where I casted on for the handles was a little loose, but the felting helped that tremendously.
On cycle in the washing machine, with some towels and it was done!
It is ADORABLE!
This is perfect size for when I actually attempt to make socks!
Next felted project will be k knits felted knot bag (free pattern on Ravelry)
Today was also my second week of a five week sewing 100 class I am taking.
Last week we learned all about the machines.
This week, we cut our fabric for our first project-a small pillow.
This will be a pillow for Miss ME.
Our second project will be a tote bag.
Have a good week!
