Latest Project: Felted Purse

I wanted to make a lightweight purse to carry inside my purse. Something I could just pull out and carry if I didn't want to carry my whole huge bag. We went to Goodwill this weekend. We donated stuff that's been sitting in the garage for over a year. I came out with a cami and a lavender sweater. I felted the (100% wool) sweater by throwing it the washer with hot water for 2 agitation cycles. Then I designed a pattern and made paper pattern pieces. I cut out the pieces, pinned them together, then sewed them up.
