Attempted knitting project

I really like to knit but I'm not very good at it. Anything I do must be EASY! So, I think this felted tote looks easy enough! I love felting, too but again, nothing ever comes out looking like "their" finished photos do!

Here's the tote before I felted it. It measures 24 x 28 inches.

I used Lion Brand Wool in the colors of Midnight Blue and Sage. It takes 3 skeins of each color.
Here's what it looks like after I felted it:

It now measures 16 x 12 inches! It really is nice and sturdy and will be great as a market tote!
I think if I make another one, I will do it in a solid color so there's no need to switch colors a lot! In this one, you change colors every five rows. I am SO tempted to make another one and use dyeable wool and dye it with Kool-Aid. I've dyed the wool before and really liked doing it.
