Sweater Renewal

A new batch of bags! I've been exploring upcycling sweaters. Cutting the sweaters to get the largest useable fabric, I layer the top with yarn and stitch roundy roundy round. The green one is made using only the sleeves and measures 13 x 12 x 4 1/2. The straps are made by trimming the waist ribbing, then folding and stitching it so that it doesn't stretch.


  1. They are lovely, you are so creative, Andi. I think I will try to make one, can't hurt anything to try, no matter how it turns out. I'll try to use the one I own as a guide and inspiration!'s holding up well, still love it!

  2. I'm glad you'll give it a try! If you need pointers, feel free to email me. I'm also glad you're still happy with the one I made.

  3. These are lovely, Andi! Just keep stitching toundy roundy round and make lots more. They look like they'll be good sellers.
