Measurements (finished clutch): Approx. 24 x 16 cm.

WATCH OUT! Felting is not an exact science and the result depends on several factors. Depending on which washing machine and/or which washing program is used or even with which other garments your work is washed, the result can vary. Some test knitters have reported that different colours behave differently when felting. You just have to try it out for yourself and make your own experiences.
