From sweater to clutch

I'm trying my hand at "up-cycling" lately. A little diversity is good for the creative soul! I found this sweater vest that had some great shell motifs and a large crocheted edge that I just had to incorporate into a bag. Because of the potential bulk, I made a simple rectangle shape added the sweater piece and will just sew up the sides. It is turning out so cute!


Just adding some bead work, a button or two and it will be finished. Up-cycling, good for the country, good for the soul! Do you have any projects you'd like to share? I'd love to see them!
