This is super easy to make and you can recycle an old sweater in the process.

What you'll need:

Old sweater
Material for lining
Needle & thread
Purse Frame (can order online from http://www.mjtrim.com or http://www.tallpoppycrafts.com)
Beads or embellishments

Cut a rectangle which measures 6 x 13 inches from the sweater and lining.  Your seam allowance will be 1/2 inch on each side.

Fold the sweater material in half and sew up the side 4 inches starting at the fold using a 1/2 seam allowance.

Fold the lining material in half and sew up the side apprx. 3.75 inches starting at the fold using a 1/2 seam allowance.

Slip the lining into the sweater portion of the purse.  Slip stitch the lining to the sweater material around the top and the sides.

Once you've completed the purse portion, you can now fit it into the purse frame.  Go slowly as the material can fall out of the frame (if you're using one from M & J.  Tall Poppy Crafts frames are crimped over the material with pliers).  

Now stitch the frame to the purse through the loops on the frame.  Make sure you stitch the side gromment of the purse frame into the purse body to make it secure.


ENJOY!

I love it also! Smiley I'm afraid if I cut any of my old sweaters they would un-ravel. What type of sweater did you use? d.

It was just an old GAP 100% wool sweater that got washed and dried accidentally.  Once you sew up the sides and sew the lining, it shouldn't unravel.
