Presto Change-o

The knitting is finished on the Stag Bag. I was intending to felt it, so after sewing up the bottom seam I sent it on a trip in the washer with my jeans. I put it in, then got distracted by the no-longer-broken girl who wanted me to answer trivia questions for her so she could buy a bathtub for her Webkinz pet. The bag swam in the hot water a little longer than it should have, and is a smidgen smaller than I was intending to make it, but I can live with the results. The tape measure is pulled out to the same place in both photos, so you can see that the hot water and agitation did what they were supposed to. In the photo it's still soaking wet, so I'll take a better picture after it's dried out.
