I signed up to be an angel for someone. I've also been wanting to make something out of wool, but didn't want to pay for expensive wool yardage. I found a pair of men's wool slacks at the thrift store, and decided to try making a Buttercup Bag. I had picked up a remnant piece of pink satin a while back & used that for the lining. It turned out great and the wool gives it a lovely texture - perfect for winter! I love the bright colored lining. I hope the recipient will enjoy this bag....it was a little difficult to send it away!
