I have this sweatshirt, I like the color and the image - but not so much to wear.  I need a knitting bag and I thought I could make a cute tote out of it and preserve the image.  Any ideas for me?

I did one of these for a friend. I carefully cut along each of the seam till I ended up with the front and back panals intact, the two sleeves spread out flat and had trimmed off all the cuffs and colars. Then I used the Jordy bag and the messenger bag tutorials for guidance and made this:

image on the back (cause it was so big)



the front (note the flap is the curve at the top of the sleeve - where it joins the shoulder)



Personally I lined mine with cotton so that it woulnt stretch if overfilled. Hope this helps  Grin

Those who say it can't be done shouldn't interrupt the person doing it.
