Oh my God !!!!!!!!!!!!! Its Tragic !!!!

OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can't believe what happened.
On my last post, I invited ideas as to what I was knitting. Well it was to be a bag. This was started 3 times as I was not sure about felting. For the 1st time I did a swatch!!!!!!!!!!!
Well I decided it needed to be knitted looser and bigger. I knitted it looser and bigger. It was 30 ins long and about 16 ins wide and I expected it to measure about 15ins high by 10ins wide.Well as you can see from the book in the picture, it is only 10ins high and the width of the book, and I cannot pull it apart, its so matted together.
I used Rowan Tapestry in colour 'pot pourri'. The colours would have been lovely, pretty pinks and greys. As I was knitting it, it was very soft and beautiful. I only felted it at 60 degrees with a couple of towels and the finished bag was to be a gift. I will not use this yarn for felting again.
OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh no! I'm so sorry. It looked really lovely in the process. Can you salvage any of it for something else? Maybe cut it up for flowers?

I'm confused.

Did it get washed? Did it get wet?

Now, it's a mobile phone holder?

Very sorry to hear that! I hope you at least learned something from the experience.
