Nayomi's bag

...is almost done!!! I have knit it; now I have to felt it (and the hat..I didn't forget!). My daughter ADORES Dora the Explorer and her favorite colors are pink and purple. I was supposed to be making this bag for her birthday, but I'm a little late. Here's a pic:

I plan to felt it Tuesday or Wednesday. I'll post pix of it and the hat then.

In case anyone is interested, I just sorta made up the design. I cast on 40 stitches with a size 13 circular needle. I knit about 25 rows of stockinette stitch. I picked up stitches all around with the knit side facing up (inside of bag). Then I knit in the round until the bag was double the size of her V-Tech game. I hope the purple and pink felt well together. Thanks for dropping in!!
