More Adventures in Felting...
And also, if I wanted a sturdier / thicker buttonhole bag, how would I do that? Three strands? I think my wallet and phone is too heavy for the one I just made.
Or if you look at those instructions and think Yeah Right; you may prefer to do the easy method. Use double sided interfacing, you iron the fabric on first, leaving one bare edge, then iron it to the bag, slipping the bare edge under the fabric so you don't have a seam.
I don't think the bag I did make can be felted any more - I ran it through two medium-long cycles in my machine. I think maybe I need to try a bad with 15's; maybe this one was just too tight to felt all the way. I am still inordinately pleased with it, though!
