Laptop Briefcase




It is done! There should be loud cheers of celebration! LOL As you can see, the inside divider and the pockets for that are not cooperating by fulling as well as the rest. I've wet just that part down twice and thrown it in the dryer, it has improved a lot, but still not enough. Suggestions? On the right of the bag you can kind of see the 4 rings that have been felted in place to hold keys. The laptop fits nicely, and this is going to be so handy when I want to go someplace.
I'm in the throes of trying to decide what to knit next. I do NOT want to do another felted project. But I don't feel up to knitting anything complicated. Decisions...

You could try turning it inside out and giving it some hand felting (soap it up, rubbing lengthwise to make it shrink lengthwise, over something bumpy) then rinse and throw it in the dryer again.

Hi!

I love that idea; felting a laptop carryall! Is that your own pattern? I'd love to try that sometime...

Also, I was trying to find your contact info & couldn't anywhere here, so part of the reason I am commenting is to ask you a question about your Dragonscale Wristwarmers pattern in the Pattern a Day Knitting calender... What yarn did you use for the sample in the picture? It's *perfect* & I want to use it when I make a pair for a friend of mine!

Thanks!!
