I've been having a lot of fun making bags out of wool skirts, here are a few of my latest additions:

wool bag with leather details:


Tweed clutch


Wool bag with an applique made of bits of three different sweaters (felted with my fun new needle felted tool)

They look so cosy and soft!  The first one is especially nice.

Thanks! 

I was so excited when I found the first skirt, I knew those leather details would look great on a bag, and the tie is one of the leather pieces too!   Wink

I love the tweed bag too - especially the closure.  Where did you find such a beauty?
