On a recent visit to a thrift store I found a lovely brown wool cardigan. It was a beautiful color, had lovely shell buttons, and was nicely soft and warm. I took it home and found a nasty hole in the elbow- big enough that you couldn't get away wearing it without someone noticing the hobo-ness of the sweater.
So I felted, cut and stitched- my first project in felting a sweater and sewing something with it. My machine almost choked on some of the fuzz, but out of it came this lovely little purse. I am so tickled with it, but I did end up giving it to my son's preschool for a fundraiser auction.
At least there is another side of the cardigan, complete with pocket, so I can make myself another.
