Funky Sweater Purse

I took an old wool sweater and felted it by machine washing it in hot water. I cut off the sleeves and sewed up the sides and across the bottom. Then I attached two buttons and an old belt. The neck hole is left open.

I also made a hot water bottle cover out of another sweater, but gave it away before I got a photo of it. It was even easier!
