The finished Felted 12″ tri bag.

Which is, as I said, about the same size as the unfelted 7″ tri bag. Well, it made really nice thick felt with no sign of the weave structure. I was not getting any ideas for embellishments until I spotted the button box so here’s one side of it. I ‘buttoned’ both sides. Added the braided strap and a lining…see below.
I have an idea for some slippers that I want to try next then I may get back to a larger tri bag. If any of you do this and get good results, please email me, I’d love to see. πŸ™‚

Lining

I’ve had this fabric for years and finally found something it goes with! Has most of the button colors, or near enough. I braided the strap around a small clothesline rope both to make it a little larger and a bit sturdier. I hope! πŸ˜€
