Upcycling again!

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!

    Lovely, and it doesn’t look at all as if it’s been upcycled. Almost makes me want to go and wash somehing in too hot water just to have an excuse to copy you 🙂
