I made this purse from a wool sweater I bought from the thrift store. I just felted it in the washer & dryer. Figured out a size & cut away. It is hand sewn, since my machine is acting up. The flower was made w/ scraps & the handles are braided strips from the sleeves. I lined it with an old t-shirt & made pockets from more scraps from the sweater. I have since made a few more & plan to keep on making them. I haven't liked any as well as my first. I made one for a gift for my friend Jaci from a cardigan sweater. Photos of more purses to come.
