I was very lucky to snag about 6 100% wool sweaters from freecycle.  I want to make them into purses and tote bags.  Somewhere either in a pattern book from the library or on the net, I saw a diagram on how to easily cut a sweater up and use all the parts in a purse or bag. So far I have had no luck in finding what I am looking for....any suggestions?   I'd like to have them finished before fall sets in:)
