Here are two purses I finished recently. I've been cleaning my sewing room and decided to use any odds and ends. I already had the handles and the sweater was from a friend. I wish you could feel this sweater, it is amazingly soft! Like butter. I'm guessing angora or cashmere?
So I washed it and dried it and used the bottom band for the left purse. The right purse is from the neck. Both are lined in cotton. Here are complete instructions.
