Susan's gift

I posted a Pay It Forward idea on Facebook last month and the first of five is finished.  I love to knit and decided to felt a bag for Allison's dear friend, Susan, who replied to my FB post.  I love the colors and I am still experimenting with how many stitches for certain yarns.  This is Brown Sheep Bulky and I love to handle it and it is quality yarn.  This time I made the strap of the felted piece by folding a strip in half and stitching on the sewing machine then I finished it with a blanket stitch of the black.  I then needle felted her initial with a simple dot or three.  I love it and I hope she does also.
