A Bag for Cecilia

This hand knit felted bag has a tropical feel to it even though it is made of 100% wool.  It made me think of my friend Cecilia and so she will be receiving it for her birthday.  This is one of my favorites as the colors are bright and the flowers turned out better than I expected (I was just fooling around with different shapes).  I hope that she will like it.
Felted items are very strong and durable.  I made a bag for myself and found that it was very sturdy.  If it becomes soiled it can be thrown in the wash - you do have to be careful though you don't want the item to shrink too too much.  Any how here is a picture of the floral part of the bag I intend to send.
