Felting is FUN!

I washed the hell out of a Merino wool sweater in hot water and then put it in the dryer on high. TWICE! It went from a women's size medium to about a Toddler size 4. Then I said to myself....now what? I stared at it awhile and a sweater bag came to mind. I dug through my vintage scarves, that are slightly ruined, and come up with a beautiful paisley one. Then I just started cutting and creating. This was my final outcome....
The sweater body is the bag body. The sweater neck became two outside pockets and the sleeves became the strap. Serging the flap and straps added a cute touch! Felted wool is so easy to work with because it doesn't fray. However, knits can have a mind of their own! All in all it was a fun bag to make :)

Keep it fancy and carry on! xo - Tracey
