I found some great blogs about how to make a purse from a sweater and decided to try it for myself. This sweater was one that I had really liked and when it did that dreadful sweater shrink thing, I decided to save it and remake it into something else. That and an old belt and a new purse was born. I didn't take pictures of the process because I didn't think I would be sharing this as a project but it turned out so well that I decided to go ahead and share with links to the blogs that I followed. The first blog was sarahdudik yellow-sweater-turns-into-a-bag-with-pockets/. This blog led me to the second blog at lemonsqueezyhome/purse-week-kick-off. I followed the main idea in both blogs but threw in my own changes. My purse pieces ended up measuring about 13" x 11". I used an old belt for the handles and with the little left over piece at the end of the belt I made a closure tab with a snap hammered in. I'm very happy with how it turned out and can't wait to make some more! A shot of the lining-I used a fat quarter.
