I am just felting my first object – a large project bag. I have had it in the washer for a couple of cycles and I am very pleased with one exception. The top edges of the bag are sort of bowed out. The bag was knit from the bottom up and actually had some decreases. I expected the bag to be slightly larger on the bottom than around the top. This is not the case.
I have the back in the washer for another short run. I plan to be extra careful not to stretch out the top edge as I shape the bottom. Any other suggestions?
