What materials did you use? I used a Man's X-Lg Sweater. It was only 60% wool so it came out softer than it should be. Try to be sure and get 100% wool sweaters.

What are you most proud of? I made the sweater tote and it is big enough to carry books or be used as a shopping bag or even a diaper bag for the grand kids. Thanks Betz!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try to get 100% wool sweaters to use for project unless you want a softer tote. mine is softer and I had to finish the edges with zigzag stitch. This item will get used a lot!

Well done! The pattern looks great across the bag.

Your tote bag is beautiful! Much nicer than the sweater it came from :)
