I started at Goodwill...finding a half off wool sweater...someone had obviously semi felted it in their dryer...oops! It was GAP...should make a nice purse!
Lay it out on it's back....cut down the collar to about the chest area...cut off each sleeve. Turn inside out...meet the side seems and then sew across the bottom...a few times for strength. Voila...a purse! I attached a fake green rose for a little flare. I plan to use the sleeves as babylegs this winter...very very warm ones!
