Earlier this year I made a bag from an inadvertently felted cardigan and I had a few pieces of felted material left over to make another, so here’s the result of this week’s bank holiday Monday 😀
Continuing the principle of using up existing materials, I used the same cotton print to line the bag, and added a matching brooch using some buttons from The Tin.
The length of the handles was determined by the fabric from the cardigan’s button bands, which (appropriately) I then edged with buttonhole stitch.
I’m now wondering what to make with the small oddments of felted wool that are left over … There might be enough for a phone cover or at least a coaster or two 😉
Have you upcycled anything this week’? I’d love to hear about it!
