|Lambswool sweater. |
Not much left of this one: one sleeve, 1/4 of the upper front section, and some hanging seams!
It has been among my favourites.
|Cutting off the ribbed cuff.|
|A 6 1/2" length for my little bag.|
A sweater sleeve has so many possibilities!
|One seam at the cuff end. This is slightly smaller in width than the top of the bag.|
I have trimmed a triangle off the corners so it will be smooth when turned.
|My trusty Seam Roll came in very handy. The first time I've used it since I crafted it.|
(HERE is my Seam Roll blog post.)
|The Threesome, top to bottom:|
Drawstring Bag with bottom seam steamed flat :-]
Trusty Steam Iron
|Ribbon was used to create the drawstring. I used a needle to do a running stitch through the sweater fabric. The wool is most conducive to this--the needle nearly jumps through it on its own.|
|Two ribbons were added.|
|And voila, a Drawstring Bag.|
Have a Happy Sunday!
