Since I finally got a sewing machine I was able to turn an old jumper of mine into a bag! I wasn't very found of it as a jumper, but it's a great bag. I've been planning making it for a very long time, but I knew that hand sewing it was out of the question. I put a lining in it, but no interfacing, as I wanted it to be easy to store (in the pictures it has a book in it, so isn't all floppy).

Me with the bag (I'm too lazy to edit out my face, so just ignore it Roll Eyes):

I'll link to the other two pictures, as I don't want to cause problems for the slower computers. Smiley

There are still plenty of rough bits, but nothing stands out too much. I'm pretty proud of this. Smiley I had a lot of problems making it, the first of which was figuring out it was knitted, so might come apart if not sewn together properly. A lot of the time I was just making it up as I went along, so it is bound to be messy. Cheesy

Damn ImageShack! *shakes fist at* Picture replaced by a clickable thingy.

It is quite roomy, I never noticed how many textbooks I could fit in it. Cheesy Although, I don't want to put too much strain on the sleeves/strap.

I just finished a bag and matching key fob from an old jumper of mine, had a stain (so sad) but not anymore!
