What materials did you use? Felted sweater

What are you most proud of? That I made it out of a $2 sweater! :)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure to choose a sweater that is mostly wool for felting. This sweater was 80% wool and 20% nylon, and it is a little stretchy.

Thank you for your nice words! I am enjoying this bag, I'm using it as a knitting bag right now. I'm always on the look-out for colorful wool sweaters so I can make more bags.
