Description

I made this little purse out of a 100% wool sweater that I found at my local thrift shop. I loved the pink stripes but someone had shrunk the poor thing to schoolgirl size. The silver lining? Felted sweaters make great fabric! I thought it might pair up nice with the Blushing Bohemian Dress at ModCloth.

With a few short breaks here and there from my two fabulously energetic little boys, I was able to make this… for ME. Merry Christmas, Jenny! :)

Material Notes

100% wool sweater, size Teeny-Weeny; Dritz Button Kit to make a fabric-covered button

    I love it! It reminds me of the cat in Alice in Wonderland…
