Felt
Put the bag in the washer along with a pair of jeans or canvas tennis shoes. Use a small amount of detergent and a low water level with a hot temperature. Wash for five minutes; bag as shown was felted 8 minutes. Stop the cycle and check to see if is felted as tightly as desired; the longer you wash it, the smaller and more felted it will become. If the bag is not quite felted enough, continue washing and carefully check every few minutes. When felted, remove and rinse in cold water. Blot with towel. Shape the bag; the fabric will still be malleable. Allow to dry completely.
Remove yarn or string from buttonhole.
Sew on button.
