This was a fun and easy project made from a child size Irish knit sweater and a designer hand bag that Margaret found at our church rummage sale.  (Total cost for these two supplies $1.00.)

What you will need for this project:

1 used sweater

1 used purse

kneedle, thread (compatible color)

seam ripper or utility knife


decorative brads

Time:  1 hour

Step 1: Step 1 : Dissasemble the bag

First disassemble the bag, taking off the handles and the top trim.
That is really clever and it makes such a cute sweater bag!
