Picture Heavy Post!
But I couldn't help myself!
More information to come :-)

The Materials:
Patons Classic Wool: 3 skeins
Lion Wool: 3 skeins
Yarn Bee Tempting Girl: 1 skein each of blue (crystal) and White
Yarn Bee Wild Child Eyelash: 1 skeins of red (flame)
1 magnetic button
1 package of four 3/4 inch handle loop things (sorry, not sure what they are called)

The Pre-Felt Measurements=massive

The Stuffing of a KING SIZE PILLOW just to show size!
Man this sucker is huge!
Let's hope it felts really well of I just wasted a lot of money!

Here we go...there is no turning back...

Me waiting for the wash to finish...
OH, I hope this works...

Relief! I love this bag! Still need to felt the straps...

But look at the button I added at the top! Magnetic!
Professional, No?

How cute! Nice bag! Awesome story-via-pictures. Adults should be aloud to look at them more often. There would be less war.
