Drawstring Bag - to felt or not to felt?

I have nearly finished the Drawstring Bag from the pattern by Barbara Breiter and am pleased with how quickly it has knitted up. Here is a link to the pattern. trouble is I now don't know whether to try felting it as my first project.

I'm really pleased with the way the yarn came out - I spun the light and darker yarn separately from the Jacob's fleece and then afterwards spun them together to ply them. Trouble is I don't want to ruin the bag by felting as I've not done it before.

Your bag looks lovely! I you want to sew it together before felting. Otherwise it is really difficult to sew and makes a big bulky seam. Have fun!
