I have been collecting and felting wool sweaters for a year now and I have been a bit intimidated to make much with them. I decided to set aside my fear this week and make a little pouch for a friend. I was also unsure of how to add a lining but I gave that a go as well. I am happy with the results and learned some things in the process.
Have a blessed day!
This pouch was made from a brown sweater that I felted in the washer. The handle is made from the edging of a vintage tea towel. The decorative flowers were cut from a small bag I purchased at The Dollar Tree.
The lining is made with linen fabric.
I hand stitched the flowers and buttons to the front of the bag.
I made a gift bag for the pouch using green sewing pattern paper. To coordinate, I stitched a flower to the top of the bag.
