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...
