I love this bag found in the Fall 2005 issue of Interweave Knits (a girl can dream, right??)..

I searched everywhere for a 100% wool sweater and found one for $7 at Hudsons (a local salvage center):

After felting and as close as I get to sewing:

Hope you enjoyed viewing as much as I enjoyed making!

Very cute! I have a pile of about 7 wool sweaters that I was going to garage sale but decided to try and turn into purses. Did you use some kind of tutorial?

No tut used.  I ust cut in a rough pattern similar to the book and stitched it together.  Luckily the thick material hides lots of mistakes.

Thanks for looking and the nice comments.
