Happy Scrappy tote hobo bag made from recycled sweater scraps in earthy autumnal browns, rust, beige & greens.

The bag is fully lined with sturdy beige fabric so it won't stretch out of shape when filled with your belongings, and there's one inner pocket to keep things like your phone, keys etc within handy reach. The long shoulder strap can be worn comfortably across the body or over the shoulder and the bag closes with a reclaimed button.

The ultimate in upcycling - making something beautiful from waste!


All sweaters are washed & dried in a dryer before I begin to prevent further shrinkage, though further shrinkage can always occur with wool, so handwashing is recommended, as is drying flat, to ensure your garment lasts for many years to come. All seams are overlocked/serged, and then top stitched again where necessary (up to 3 times in places) - made with the utmost attention to detail, made with love & made to last! With correct care your purchase will see you through many years of adventuring! Slight irregularities & the odd wonky seam are the nature of these creations, they are after all recycled and therefore have a bit more character & personality than shop bought clothing. Each one comes to life the moment I pick up my scissors, I never use a pattern, each is totally unique. I am however an expert seamstress with over 25 years experience designing and making, having started sewing clothes for my dolls at aged 6 :-)

Should any threads come loose then please just pull them through to the reverse side with a small crochet hook if you have one, or just cut off, please do not pull. All thread ends have been finished by hand with a special triple knot into which I weave Love, Happiness & Good Fortune.

Many thanks to the lovely Katwise for being such an inspiration.

If you have any further questions then please just drop me a convo.

Thank you for stopping by my shop!

Love & light!
