Take one unattractive, itchy, unwanted sweater (purchased for $1.99 at the thrift store!)…
A sharp pair of scissors, a sewing machine and a little ingenuity…
And you end up with a rather nifty bag, just perfect for toting a couple knitting projects, library books or whatever else suits you!
The entire project took only a few minutes, from start to finish. It’s not too late to give a couple handmade gifts…and look at how much sweater is left!! I foresee a couple needle bags or maybe even cut-and-sew mittens.
The thrift store is waiting for you…grab a couple sweaters and get started!
Speaking of gifts…those lovely walnut knitting needles? Hand-turned and finished by my dear husband, three years ago. My favorite needles, by far.
Nothing says “love” like handmade!
