Colourful felt bag from recycled sweater with c... - Folksy

Shared by pollykyte in the Fabric Crafts

Product Description:

The main body of this bag is recycled from a very colourful pure wool sweater. I felted the sweater and cut it to shape. I lined it with a toning cotton and added a pocket. I then crocheted around the bag with an acrylic yarn to form the top and the handles which are about 22 inches long. I added a magnetic clasp for security. Lastly I crocheted a double layer flower brooch and put a bead in the centre to reflect the colours in the bag. I stitched a brooch fixing on the back so that the brooch can be moved around the bag or used separately on a jacket or sweater.
The bag measures about 14 inches across and 8 inches from top to bottom.
