I had a nice long description typed up...then my 2 yr old erased it...UGH..
This experiment is a combination of the My Little Companion pattern and the Zara Scarf pattern. The Zara Scarf is very cool...but being in stockinette stich it curled terribly. I did not think blocking would solve it. I really liked the technique in the scarf, however, and thought it would look great on a felted purse.
Here are the results of my experiment. I changed the measurements of the My Little Companion bag. We'll see how it turns out! I used Noro Kureyon #157 (six skeins!) and 2 skeins of another purple wool (i'll have to find the name) for the zig zag overlay.
Pre-felting measurements are approx 18 wide by 12 deep by 12 high
