I have been asked 3 questions in 3 days about this purse. Where did I buy it, where did I get it, and how much was it.
I made it out of an old men's sweater I found at DI. I felted the wool, cut off the arms and neck, sliced the arms into straps, sewed up the bottom, and put a little bird on it. And I love that when it gets dirty, I just throw it in the washer.
Using old things for a new purpose makes me irrationally happy. I don't know why. But there it is. Apparently, 3 other people like the look too :)
