Completed Well traveled bag - newest FO
Ta Daa! What do you think? Well, I like it. Of course I'll notice the little imperfections, but I really, really like it. With all that said I have to 'fess up about the pocket. I showed some photos of the bag looking great. Now here's the side that will always be against my body! I think the inside pocket affected the way the outer bag felted. The double thickness in that spot might be the culprit. The outline of the pocket is clearly visible from the outside (not just because of the extra thickness). Maybe I stitched it together too tightly and there wasn't enough "give" for the felting to occur without pulling at those stitches? Who knows. I'm happy with my first fulling/felting project.
