What materials did you use? 2 x 50g balls of a hand-painted yarn I fell in love with

What are you most proud of? Working out that I could pick up the cast-on edge meant there was no extra making-up to do after I cast off - just weave in the 2 ends and it's done!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Remember felted fabric shrinks more in the row height than width, so make sure your handle isn't too short.

It doesn't have a pattern - I just made it up as I went. I think the handle was 8 stitches wide and about 80 rows long. Then cast on an extra 52 stitches for each side of the bag (total 120 stitches in cluding 2 sides and 2 ends of handle). There's about 72 rows before the base decreases start. If you have 120 stitches, place 4 stitch markers, and decrease 2 at each stitch marker, you'll finish the base after 15 rows. I hope that helps! .
