One of a kind purse made from a reclaimed, hand knitted sweater. The gorgeous cable stitch is an eye catcher, one flowing stitch (once the neck piece, now a fab shoulder strap).  Original buttons up the side make this orange knit bag multi-functional. Button it up to the top for an over the shoulder style, unbutton a few and wear it across your chest!

I lined the purse with reclaimed material from shirts and pants, for extra support.

Because this comes from reclaimed sweaters, unless it's noted here the specific type of yarn is unknown.
