Sweater that didnt't fit to a bag
I felted this sweater a bit too much in the wash, so it didn't fit. But it had great buttons, and I loved the pattern on it. So, inspired by some ravelry groups, I decided to make it a bag.
Here is the sweater:

And here is the fo bag

It took a bit of sitting and looking at how the pieces were together and cutting apart and sitting more and figuring it out, but I think the result is pretty decent.
Thanks for looking!

That looks great! What a great idea rather than packing it away and fretting about it.

What a great idea. Sure beats tossing the sweater, and it came out really nice.
