Tip: When doing the second handle, lay the bag flat and see where the other side is attached and use that as your measurement. This will allow you to keep your handles being attached at relatively the same point for both sides.

The photo shows some of the yarn not being felted. I thought some of the yarn was 100% Wool. I lost the labels and made an assumption. I learned after completion of the felting process that I had used Acrylic yarns by accident. This pattern still works for felting.Free Pattern by Michael Sellick – The Crochet Crowd ©2012 The Crochet Crowd
