Knitting - Felted Messenger Bag

First blogged here and then here... using this pattern by Claudia Olson (Ravelry link), although its no longer a messenger bag!

Well...  BEFORE washing it measures 24" wide, 4" deep and 14" tall and the strap is 32" was long.

I estimated one third shrinkage to 16" wide and 8" tall with a strap of 28" long.

AFTER one 60 and two 40 degree washing cycles it shrunk to 19" wide, 3" deep and 8.5" tall and the strap is 24" long.

Its too wide...

I think drastic action (and a pair of scissors) is required to salvage something...
