Here's the final bag, stuffed. It doesn't look anything like the original, but boy does it stretch. I had about 1 inch of yarn as a final tail, and I really thought the handle was going to be too short. Anyway, it's a strange beast, no doubt matching my strange mood.
I went a-blog surfing yesterday and found some incredible stuff out there. There are so many creative and productive crafters out there, I am both humbled and inspired.
