I made these felted bags for a woman in MI - a VERY PATIENT woman. They ended up a bit different than she asked for, but as I worked on them my functional and artistic sides had a meeting and out voted me 2 to 1. The handles and attachments are different - they seemed a bit more appropriate texturally than the acrylic ones.
I also opted to line them. Not only did it give a more finished look, it gave it more structure and stability - particularly to the bottom. Now the lining will hold the weight instead of the wool (which will stretch).
