Welcome to my stop on the Ruffles blog hop tour – if you are a regular visitor you will know I have a bit of a passion for upcycling, and bags. So it will be no surprise to you that I have created a bag out of my brothers former jumper. Very sadly this high quality, rather large but extremely useful pass me down jumper accidentally went in the wash!

 

Ruffle felt bag

The jumper felted in the washing machine. I paired it with a vibrant turquoise scarf from the local jumble sale, no expense spared for this bag (20p)

I added medium weight interfacing (from my stash) to the rather flimsy scarf, and added an internal pocket, to create the bags lining.

Adding the lining and turning round the corners was a little trickier than I anticipated, whether this was because it was the first time I had turned in lining round corners, or because of the fabric I don’t know.

The black ruffle is made from one of the sleeves hand stitched on, with a longer piece of scarf ruffled in the middle.

I followed the directions over at Not dabbling in normal for creating the bag, I have to admit I must have pinned this project well over a year ago. I am delighted the ruffle hop finally meant I made the bag. I am looking forward to using the bag to take supplies to my local craft group, it’s surprising just how roomy a jumper bag is:)
