Messenger bag -- all over but the felting

I finished the strap and put the whole thing together over the weekend. Of course, as with everything I do, I didn't bother to do a gauge sample, so my piece was 5 inches shorter and 2 inches narrower than the pattern, which then necessitated a whole lot of math on my part. Math and I don't get along at all, but it appears that I was successful in figuring it out.

Hopefully this coming weekend I'll travel to my mother-in-law's house to do the scary felting.

Wow! That looks great. I really, really like the color selection. Don't be scared just take it slow and easy and check it after every cycle. The felting is slow with the first cycle or two but speeds up after that.
