I'm here to let you all know that if you have any trouble felting something, send it to me. I'm pretty sure my machine could felt just about anything. Got any wood chips lying around? No problem. Bag of screws? Bring 'em on!
Booga Bag = Done! Woopee! Felting is fun!
The final product is a bit smaller than I expected, but actually only about an inch smaller than the pattern. In the world of felting and yarn subbing, I'd say that's pretty good.
Notice something a little different? Hey look at that? The color is, uhm, not the same. Seems the kettle dye wasn't set so well. I ended up with a very 1960's blue. Jackie O. would be so proud. I like it. It's just not what I expected, and I'm not sure it matches anything I own. Who am I kidding? This is Smurf blue. I may gift this. Can't decide. I once lived across the street from someone who painted their house that color. We laughed and laughed. And laughed some more.
In case you forgot, here's what it looked like minutes before I threw it in the wash.
Aside from the color change, which I attribute to ultra, unnecessarily hot water, the bag acquired a few wrinkles that I couldn't stretch out. I blame this on ridiculously high spin cycle. It was almost dry when I pulled it out! Well you live and learn.
