The bag, the almost final chapter.
Here it is. I love it! Now I will be happy to mail it to my pal. The front.
The side. If I had more time I would add a stiffener to the bottom, but I've already pushed my luck too far.
The back has a little crocheted flower on it. I have no idea how I managed to do this. I just fiddled and cursed until it had a flower type look.
Now that I am happy with my KMKS bag, I get to keep this bag. I really like this one and now that it has been felted, I can use it as a shopping bag. It only took a moment of panic to make me get off my behind and felt it.
For those who asked, I used the dryer felting method. I got it soaking wet, rubbed in a little baby shampoo, ran it under hot water then threw it in the dryer on the hot setting. I started checking the progress after about 20 minutes. If after 40 minutes it still wasn't doing anything, I took it out, ran it under cold water then under hot again and threw it back in. It took nearly an hour and a half of that to felt the blue bag to my satisfaction and two hours to felt the Basket of Keys bag.
