Good evening fellow bloggers. It's Thursday and I'm just getting around to blogging. The day was busy and went by so fast but I have a fun project to tell you about and I forgot to take the before picture. A friend came to me and asked to make a bag out of a boiled wool sweater that she had picked up at a local Salvation Army store. She loved the handwork on the front of the sweater. She is not a knitter and loves the felted bags one can knit, so she thought that buying this sweater and making it into a bag would be the next best thing. She also picked up two canvas belts with the double rings on the end of the belt. She asked me if I could use them as the handles on the bag. I really liked the idea and I told her that I would figure out something for her. So this is what I did and how it came out:
When I was finished sewing the bag together I took the canvas belts and sewed them to the front and back of the bag. I left the D rings on the belt on because she thought she could attach keys to the front of the bag instead of searching deep inside the bag. The belts were slightly different in color but they added to the look of the bag with all the different colors on the front. The finished bag measurements were: 19" long, 16" wide and the sides were 4 1/2" wide.
