I love this bag. It was a little challenging because it wasn’t felted. It was a custom order from an etsy member and the size she wanted was the exact size of the original sweater. I used every last bit of wool to complete it.


She sent me her own lining fabric, which was beautiful. I also used the hand-embroidered sleeve stripes as the strap.


This was another bag that was hard to let go. You can see all the pics over on etsy.

Next up on the handmade agenda: a custom baby blanket. In the meantime, did you make something yourself? Post it here!

    It’s beautiful, Julie!! Are you posting home-made Christmas gifts on a flickr website? I want to post my craft stuff but it is all for christmas gifts and I don’t want my family to see them!
