buttonhole bag 2, pre-felting

The infamous Mason-Dixon Buttonhole Bag. With four skeins of Lamb’s Pride and a skein of Southwest Trading Company’s pretty silk/wool blend, voila — two bags, before felting.

I used Jan’s alteration to the pattern to make these a bit more sturdy. I’m still not a pro at felting, but I do like the way these finished up.

Oooh, this one looks wobbly. Good thing it is sure to be stuffed with fun goodies before being given away.
