I finished my first felted bag. It's my version of the Scallops and Beads bag from Knit One, Felt Too. I used different yarns then asked for so the final result looks much different then the book but I am happy with it. I used Lion Brand Landscapes for body and some wool embroidery thread doubled up for the brim. The handle is an i-cord made from Landscapes. I wish I had taken a before picture. It took two hot cycles in the washing machine to get it to the right size.

Here's some shots from our trip to the Orange County Zoo.

A bear wandered right by us before he picked up his watermelon slice and took it back to his liar.
