Noni Designs KAL Waiting To Be Assembled!

Hi All!  I finished my laptop sleeve.  Well, almost.  I need to got shopping for hardware.  Oh, and I didn't read ALL the directions.  Like, make 4 of the tabs.  Easy fix.

Below are pictures of the stages I went through the felt the bag in my washing machine.  At first it didn't seem like it was working.  Then I remembered to keep resetting the agitator cycle to conserve water and it worked!    I kept checking on it every few minutes to see how it was doing.  I am very happy with how this turned out.  I love the pattern for the Perfect Fit Laptop Sleeve and I absolutely loved the Shepherd's Wool from Stonehedge and I would definitely use it for future projects.

I'll post the assembled bag once I have it all sewn up!

Me too. I just need to knit 2 more tabs, find the rings I want to use and then find someone who can sew it all together for me. It may take me several weeks as we are in the midsts of getting ready to move in the next few weeks.
