No knit - Knit bag

I have been holding on to my favorite sweater for 2 winter seasons now. I stained it, I don't remember with what. I just couldn't get it clean for nothing in the world and I tried everything anyone suggested.

This is my favorite sweater:


Today I took a pair of scissors to it and made this:



I will now be able to keep my favorite sweater as a recycled sweater purse! This instructions for this knit bag are here. Only instead of knitting a 10" x 20" piece of fabric, cut it out of your sweater, or someone else's sweater.

That turned out SO cute. I'm now wishing I had spare sweaters laying around. I'd love to make a cute bag like this.
