I got a lovely ball of wool from a charity shop. Soft, mauve and a little fluffy.
I then knitted it out with another thread of yarn, on big needles using moss stitch.
I asked the ladies at a the craft evening I run for ideas on what to do with it. We decided that it should be made into a bag.

Here it is:

The inside was made form a piece cut from a nighty that I bought ages ago from a charity shop. i even managed to encorporate the nighty's pocket.

This gorgeous flower was crocheted by one of my crafting friends. She had it in her stash and it fitted the bag really well. Thank you!! Cheesy

And I used fused plastic as interfacing so it keeps it's shape. It's a very recycled bag. only new item in it was the thread.

What do you think?

It's really gorgeous! I loooove the lining.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.
