Felted Stripe Bag

It has been a while since I've have posted. I seem to be working on projects that are taking a bit of time to finish.
Last month I posted a tote bag that I had knitted and felted. The directions for that bag were from "Felt" magazine by Interweave press. This striped bag above in another knitted bag from the same magazine. I knitted it from Cascade 220 wool yarn on size 10 1/2 needles. Before felting, the bag measured 22" wide at the base and 24" tall to the point of one of the triangles. I felted the bag in the washing machine, using hot water a small amount of soap. After felting, the bag measures 17" wide and 12" tall. I love the thickness of the fabric after it was felted.
On to the next bag!
