I made another sweater bag for Amanda, this time out of a sweater vest I found in her Goodwill donations months and months ago. I’ve had it finished for awhile but didn’t get a chance to give it to her until this week. It was her birthday a few days ago so it all worked out. 🙂
I hacked apart the shirt before I’d thought through was I was going to do with it; a sweater bag once again prevailed.
The vest had a deep v-neck so it made a fairly shallow bag.
I turned a bit of extra fabric into a pocket for the inside.
And used black satin for the lining.
The handles were originally made for the purple sweater bag before I found a lighter lining for it. I’ve been holding on to them until another bag came along that needed them. I used black fleece for the insides of the handles and black broadcloth for the outsides.
So this is the fifth sweater tote I’ve made so far. I don’t have any more sweaters in my possession, so if I do make another one it won’t be soon. I’m still on a pretty big tote kick, so look for more (not made out of sweaters) this summer!
