Before and After Felting
Pre-felting. Instead of making a twisted cord for the handles, I knitted on two straps by picking up five stitches on either side of the flap. I also made a buttonhold instead of the crocheted cord to use with the button.
After felting and blocking (4 DVD covers fit perfectly in here!) there's a small amount of stitch definition but mostly just a soft, nubby texture with a halo from the mohair.
Teeny is right! There's room for a cell phone, small wallet and lipstick.
Now all that is left is to find the right button and sew it on!
