My first wool sweater purse
Here it is. This is my first attempt. I made the lining inside with little sweater pockets made from the ribbed sleeves. One for keys, one for lipstick and one for a cell phone. I put a pocket on the outside. Little bit off, but passable. I can't do much hand sewing...hard for me to grip a needle. I did hand sew the lining in though. What do you think? I used a tuscan, olive themed lining for this one. It did take its own shape in the making of it. Since it is not perfect, I will carry this one to test its durability.
This next photo is a snapshot of the inside of the purse.
This was fun, but I have to put off making another until next week. I'm going in to work the night shift tonight and tomorrow, so, until later...
Thanks for blogging with me today.
