'Felt United' Seaweed Tote- Part 3 of 3

The partially felted project...

...after making cuts for the handles.

(A few stitches temporarily reinforce the denser bit of blue knitting.)

 
The finished tote bag...

 
...blocked and drying.



Its lace-like knitted embellishments... 


...reminiscent of seaweed!

 
The yarn felted easily and completely into the fiber during felting...

 
...and any knitting errors are long forgotten! :)

 
The thin, interior flaps provide peace of mind...

 
...yet open out easily...

...for quick access to the bag's contents!



Happy Felt United Day to all of you!!!!

Next time: my 'Peculiar Projects' series resumes.

You're clever to felt with knitted yarns. It does look beautiful texture.
