It is time for the High School years and we will focus on that. Including my daughter's plans and interests as they prepare to leave the nest. In the past we have used Waldorf, Montessori, Lapbooking and TWTM in our homeschool and I will leave the working links up.
Finished Object Friday: Rainbow Felted Project Bag
Yes, my project bag is done. I ran it through the hot water wash twice in my new washer. And I am so happy with the results. Want to see it?
I sewed the buttons on with contrasting yarn so it would have even more of that artsy feel. The only thing I wish I would have done is had the top of the straps meet in the middle at the top rather than have them at the sides. But it is a nice, roomy bag with plenty of space for my yarn, needles, pattern and any notions I need when I am taking my work in progress out and about with me. Yes, I knit in public all the time.
26 1/2 inches around after felting
You can still see some of the bumpiness of the moss stitch, the 8 by 8 ribbing is total gone but the button holes look sharp. The straps felted together nicely and are done with a 4-strand braid. The stripes look like they reduced by 1/2 although it was only reduced by 4 inches. The bottom took a bit to felt well.
Now that this is done, I need to make a matching notions pouch and needle holder. If you want to see more finished objects then check out Tami's Blog.
