Recycled Sweater Purse

3 of my nieces birthdays are coming up and I thought I would make something for them.  I have been on an upcycle kick using jeans, corduroy, wool and cashmere sweaters.  After doing some researching on pinterest and craftsy I looked thru my stash and got to work.  So far I have 2 completed, and one more to go....

This one is my favorite so far. I like that it is lined and a bit smaller, which is great for an ipad, a book, etc.  Jump over to Make It and Love It for the tutorial.  Total time for this bag was approximately 1 hour. 

The second one is from the Upcycle class on Craftsy.  Super easy and approximately one hour to complete.  

I hope they like them:)
