Hi everybody,

I thought I'd share this purse I made this past weekend from repurposed materials. I used denim for the base fabric of the purse, as well as the strap, and I used strips of wool felted sweater scraps for the front of the purse. I lined it with a cotton muslin fabric that I had tie-dyed a couple summers ago.

I really like the way it turned out. I had this idea in my head for the longest time and finally got around to making it. I posted a tutorial on my blog if you'd like to see how I made it.


I'd love to know what you guys think!


Reuse, Recycle, Refashion!

I absolutely love it!  I've got a collection of wool sweaters I've found at Goodwill that I've been saving for months just waiting for a great idea like this.  I was going to do some much needed Spring cleaning, but now I think you've given me the perfect excuse to put it off for a couple days!!!   Grin
