I finally finished the purse that I was knitting and thought I would never finish. It took me a few weeks to put it together and felt it but I did it. I actually felted it yesterday in my friends washer and at first I thought that it would felt because I didn't put the washer setting on hot, but she fixed it and it finally felted. It was pretty big before I felted it too and what I've noticed is that the longer that I keep it in the washer, the smaller it becomes. Duh!!! That's pretty obvious once you think about it though. I also felted the other purse and it's pretty cute also even though it's smaller than I wanted it to. So I've putting up a few pics of the purse. I hope you enjoy.
