Very pretty bag. I love the flower design. The tips on sewing thick felt are really helpful, too!

What a very cute bag! I'd like to try this during this winter sometime.

Nikki: Thanks for the info. This is such a great project idea. I can't wait to try it. I am also pleased that you used the hand-punch needles instead of the pricey machines I've seen used recently!

What a nice bag. Love the flower. It adds some whimsy.

tessiesgal, this particular sweater fulled to a very dense, tight state - the handles don't stretch very much at all. Sometimes sweaters are still rather stretchy after fulling, in which case you would need to reinforce the handles.

What a clever idea for recycling a sweater. Thanks for the tips on sewing with fulled material.

What a great project! This gives me ideas--I've had the felting needles for a long time and haven't tried anything with it yet. Thanks for the inspiration!

Your bag is cute. I love the flower design. However, are the handles sturdy enough without lining? I'd be afraid that they'd become misshapen after the purse is weighted down with a wallet, keys, etc.
