I was doing a bunch of little jobs down in the studio today, when I come across a sweater of TJ’s that I accidentally felted a while back. (As a side note – seriously? I am a knitter. How could I not wash that sweater properly?)
So, rather than just throw it out, I thought I would make a handbag with it.
I used an old belt that I had broken to make the handle for it.
For the inside, to keep it stable with all my purse junk, I lined it with some leftover denim I had.
I originally only had the one snap on the knit part, but I wanted a bit more stability so I put a magnetic clasp on the denim part.
I haven’t decided if it is neat or if I have just fallen off the crafty deep end!
