Ever since I was asked to make a purse from an accidentally felted Eileen Fisher sweater last year, I’ve been thinking about making more “upcycled” sweater purses. I’ve been seeing really cute ones on Pinterest, and spotted this one at a high school basketball game:

I know I want to make some!

To get started, I created an Upcycled Sweater Purses Pinterest board to collect  ideas. I have a couple of wool sweaters that were headed to the thrift store, but are now in a plastic tote, waiting to be upcycled.  I just need some time to dig in and have fun!

Accessories, especially purses, are always popular items at my fundraising boutique sales, and I think upcycled sweater purses would be a big hit. Do you agree?
