Finished project! Recycled wool sweater bag

I finally finished my project I started last week :) We've all been sick with a nasty cold that just isn't going away. So I keep starting then stopping my sewing.

Anyway, this is a project from the Betz White book I mentioned in my last post - it's a messenger type of bag. I bought the sweater at a thrift store for $2 and knew that's what I wanted it for. i love this bag, it's really not hard to make - I was worried since I have tried purse/ bags before without alot of success.

Anyway here it is:
I am going to play with wool alot this year - there are so many possibilites!

The purse is beautiful. I just purchased 8 sweaters from Goodwill to try out making bags. I've been surfing for a while and yours is my favorite!
