Knitting - Felted Messenger Bag


First blogged here... using this pattern by Claudia Olson (Ravelry link).

Its a monster!  My wool is thicker and my needles bigger and I did run out of wool so now its a bucket type bag with an over shoulder strap.

BEFORE felting it measures...24" wide, 4" deep and 14" tall.  The strap is 32"

The proportions are all wrong, far too wide, I should have cast on less stitches.

After felting it SHOULD measure 16" wide and 8" tall with a strap of 28".  This assumes a third shrinkage which is a good estimate...
