re-felted

I made this about a month ago but wasnt really happy with it, I could still see through it in some places and it was kindof floppy. So (since my washer doesn't do hot water) I popped it back in the bathtub and rubbed and rubbed it until it shrank up a lot more and now I love it! Actually I just sent it off to a friend who loves it even more though :)

Ooh, I love that bag. Great choice of yarn.

Glad to see you like the bag now after the second felting. What a lucky friend!

Hello there RedThread. I was looking on the search engines for purse and handbag related websites using the keyword placemat purse and found your awesome page with the title re-felted. I am looking for ideas on how to improve my own site using different keywords and was amazed how easy it was to find your site using the keyword placemat purse. Perhaps we could do a link exchange at some point. Anyway, thanks for your time and I’m really happy I found you on the web.
