The photo here on the left and below is the larger black bag in the making. I used Malabrigo's Rasta yarn for the stripes on the outside. I LOVE that stuff, it just melts so easily into the felt. I've used it on merino, merino, silk 50/50 blends and on corriedale. I buy it online from a great yarn shop in San Francisco called Imagiknit, they always seem to have it in stock.
Thanks for stopping by! Terry
