My First Felted Purse

Well, here it is, the purse I've been working on for a few weeks. I forgot to take a photo of it before I washed it. It's AMAZING how much wool shrinks! I think I really need to follow a pattern next time. :-) But I think I'm turning into Great. I saw a pattern for a crocheted purse but I didn't want to pay $10 for it. I thought I could figure it out. I got pretty close, but I just didn't realize how much it would shrink. Before I washed it, it hung down past Jo's hips and was very loose.

Jo wants a pink/orange one next!
