Recycled Sweater Bag, Revisited and Resweatered

Reconstructed Sweater Bag #2

Once upon a time, I made some bags out of sweaters (okay, it was probably around 2008!).

The first bag was made for my daughter. It was purple and stripey and had cute little flowers on the front. She loved it so much, and carried it for so long, that I made more and posted a tutorial to boot, including a version on cut out + keep.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle a Thrift Store Sweater!

Two years later, a lovely blogger named Kris asked to post about my recycled sweater bag over on Resweater. And, that is just what happened! There have been lots of visits to the recycled sweater bag post, which has helped me to remember what a fun project it was to create. Thanks, Kris!

It’s been a while since I’ve recycled a sweater, mostly because I live in Texas and wool sweaters are something of a rarity. I haven’t found one that really grabbed my attention in quite some time, but I’m sure if I did, I would be happy to make another of the spiffy bags!
