I've had this sweater for some time waiting to send it to the shrinking machine. It was a J. Crew and still is. These sweaters are made with such loving care and thick yarn. Thick as if you knitted it yourself. Well I wanted some of that yarn so that I could make a matching handle and matching flowers. So very carefully I removed the sleeves and then unraveled them. My honey was the winder. So with what was left of the sweater I made this purse with the bottom of the sweater being the top of the bag. I used the zipper from another sweater that was heavy duty and two inches too long, but that was ok, gives you something to hold on to. Each flower has a fancy button for the center. It was fun to make, just turned out too big for me, 12" deep and 21" wide and the handle has a 19" drop.

Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for looking.
