Jumper to bag

We are always finding things that we haven’t worn in years, like this little number.

Instead of doing the usual and putting it in a bag for the charity shop, we decided to see if we could turn it into something we would use. This is what we did.

Step 1:

We cut the sleeves and most of the neck area off.

Step 2:

Open out one of the sleeves

Step 3:

Sew the open sleeve inside the front neck to give an even edge on the top

Step 4:

Now sew up all your seems to the size of bag you would like.

Step 5:

Now use any left over pieces to make a couple of straps for your new tote.

We used the edging of the back neck

and the edging on the other sleeve

Step 6:

Now simple sew on your straps.

What a lovely new bag, a bit christmassy too.

What will you do with the next piece of old clothes you find?

Happy Crafting

Handsome and Pretty
