felted "statchel"

this is my stash-buster satchel, aka: "statchel". oh boy, am i clever or what? yeah...don't answer that.

so...i wanted something small and unobtrusive, yet bright and obnoxious. i also had the inexplicable urge to felt.. i had half-skeins of the lamb's pride bulky in oranges and reds left over from art's jayne hat, and a tiny little ball of the pink malabrigo left over from the jester hat. so i grabbed the leftovers and some size 13 needles and knit away. well, except the strap--for that i just crocheted a big long chain. add a little hot water, sew on a button, and i got me a fun little sunrise-inspired statchel just big enough to hold my wallet, keys, and cell phone. perfecto!
