Heart and 'Thumbprint' Sample Tote- Part 2 of 2

Mid-way through felting...


                                          ...the tote is turned right-side out...



                                      ...and a 'U'-shaped slit is cut into each side...



                                                         ...to form a handle.



                                                           During felting...

                             ...the knitted heart has 'become one' with the pre-felt...



                          ...and the silk and wool yarn has melted into the bag beautifully.


                                                   The finished tote (side one)...



                                     ...and a close-up of the felted heart.


                                           Side two with its 'thumbprint' stitching...



                           ...and a closer look at the variegated yarn colourway.



                                       I like that there's a small shock of green...

                                ...when you catch a glimpse of the bag's interior...



                                           ...and the multicolored dots of yarn...

                                                     ...really make me smile.


                                         Next time: the first of two tote projects...

                         ...which were actually made right-side out for a change!! :)
