Felted bag for a friend

I had a request for a black felted bag with pink stripes from a co-worker based on Heather's peanut resist bag that she made for me. I used a rectangle resist for mine. So today was the day to get that project completed.  I actually started it yesterday, but it got too hot in the garage to complete it, so I waited until it was cooler this A.M to work on it.

I have decided that I DO NOT like working with black wool!  I used a dyed merino.  It kinda reminds me of wearing black pants.....it attracts all kinds of fiber and looks messy.  After the photo shoot, I gave it a shave.  It cleaned it up much more to my liking.  I hope my co-worker likes it........giving something I make to someone else always causes me such anxiety!!!
