A felted thrift-store sweater is the perfect raw material for all kinds of bags from huge totes to chic little accessory bags and everything in between. The original bag I made for the latest issue of CraftStylish (now available on newsstands) was the inspiration for this cute little pouch I whipped up in no time.

Supplies

  • Felted sweater pieces
  • Scissors
  • Rotary cutter and cutting mat (optional)
  • Ruler
  • Tape measure
  • Upholstery foam or Styrofoam block
  • Scrap yarn, 100% wool
  • Felting needle and/or needle-felting tool
  • Wool roving (unspun wool fibers)
  • Straight pins
  • Zipper sized to fit the bag (I used a 5-inch zipper)
  • Thread to match sweater
  • Sewing machine (this can be hand-sewn if a machine is not available)

Step by Step
Cut out the size pouch desired from the prefelted sweater with your rotary cutter or scissors. My starting point was 7 inches by 9 inches. An unfelted sweater will work okay, but felted wool will give you a durable, firm fabric that will safely hold all your goodies without stretching out.


The dimensions were 7 inches wide by 9 inches long.
