I think I'm in love

Here is the Booga Bag, ready to be felted. I was nervous about felting it since it was my first time doing it. It went beautifully although I did have one snafu in the washing machine. Instead of jeans, I tossed in my bathroom rugs, thinking, gee, they are kind of heavy. Don't try it - the rugs shredded, but my bag felted really well after just two runs through the washing machine. Cascade 220 is some great yarn.
And here is the Booga Bag after felting and blocking. I love it, love it, love it! It did turn out a bit smaller than I thought it would, but isn't it cute? Next one will have longer handles so I can put it on my shoulder. I had the hardest time making the holes for the handles, and I finally got out my big 'ole size 13 needles and then used a pair of tweezers that I use for beading to pull the i-cord through. I wish I knew how to sew, and then I would make a liner for it. Maybe that's next ...
