View of the front, bottom and back of bag. If you look closely, you can see that the left side is embroidered, and the right side has not been done yet, sort of a before and after. The front and back panel each measure 11" high by 17" wide. This will shorten during the felting process. I used Cascade 220, which is a lovely yarn from Peru. Nice and soft, almost a shame to felt.
This pattern, Floral Felted Bag, is from Interweave Knits Fall 2004, pg52. It's a nice project. I learned a lot about Intarsia doing this, like do the best you can and remember it is going to be felted!

This view shows all the loose ends involved. Intarsia is crazy!

This close up view gives you a better idea of all the yarn color changes.
