Felting Success

Made a quick trip to the thrift store yesterday afternoon and found myself in the middle of a 'buy one get one free' sweater sale! What more could a girl ask for! So, here is project No.1 of probably 50 felted sweater projects to come!
I started with this...

And made this!

The hood made the base of this bag and the belt made the handles. I've had the houndstooth fabric in my stash for a long time just waiting for the right time to use it.

I am really happy with how this bag turned out. It's wintery looking, but with some color. I am contemplating embellishing it a little...any ideas?

P.S. Sorry for the crappy photos. I just put the finishing touches on this and was very anxious to show it to you!

Love it!! I would have never guessed it came from a sweater you found at a thrift store! I bet you have something cute in mind for the remainder of the sweater!!
