Done! A little over felted because as I was felting it I realized that the utility sink was clogged, and got rather distracted trying to unclog it. But, it turned out pretty well regardless.
And for those if you wondering about the straps, I did the poke a hole through and tie thing, and it worked out really well. So if you haven't figured out another way, that'll probably do the trick for you.
How is everyone else doing??? And what is your next project????
