Metropol is a great pattern if you’re felting for the first time. Due to its construction, the result is a professional looking bag, and all your friends will be asking which boutique you found it in (and then asking you to make them one when they find out you made it yourself!). This bag is great for everyday use, and it is also perfectly sized to hold a laptop. I’ve added a lining in my bag with pockets to hold all my little treasures and necessities, but this is an optional addition.
One skein of Cascade Eco+ in each:
