I had a sweater. I liked the color but hated how it fit. I saw this post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=280721.0 and decided to give it a try! Most of the sweater-to-purse recons I found online were just two squares sewn together. I loved what she came up with!

Here's mine:


I never remember a before pic, but I did manage an in-process pic. This was after I drafted the pattern.


Oh, and have you seen what Apple charges for the cozies that look like sweaters!?!?!?!?! Ouch!

That is awesome! And it's only two pieces (excluding a lining)? I'm impressed. Here I am, cutting a million pieces and sewing them all together. lol

Thanks for the pattern pic! It really helps me to visualize it.

Yup! Two pieces for the outside and two for the lining plus any pockets you may want. Smiley
