Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of the sweater before I got started, but you will get the idea. It had a high collar on it, but otherwise it was just a cable knit. Here's part of the sweater cut up and the fabric. Pretty as an outfit, don't you think? So, I paid $.50 for the fabric and $2.25 for the sweater.
As soon as I got it home, I knew what I wanted to do with it. I decided to make a sweater-lined purse with it. I love the wintery feel of it and can't wait to carry it. I used the sweater body to make the lining. I used the bottom of the sweater as the top of the bag. That way, I didn't have to worry about finishing edges so that the sweater wouldn't unravel where I cut it.
The pockets inside are made with the neck of the sweater.
Tune in tomorrow night to see what I do with the rest of the fabric and sweater pieces!
