Crafternoon: Sweater Bag Finished

Crafternoon: Sweater Bag Finished

Caroline and I finished her sweater bag today.
The total time we spent making this sweater bag was three and a half hours.
Tonight I'm just posting photos of the sweater bag and a What You Need to make it list.

A Monday Afternoon Sew-a -long

Monday morning I will write a tutorial with photos. From 1:30 to 3:30 MT, I will sew the sweater bag with you. Also, during those times, I will answer all e-mail inquires you send about the sweater bag.

What you will need

A sweater you don't wear or a thrifted sweater is ideal.
1/2 a yard of liner fabric (adjust for size of bag)
3-6 Big buttons


Thread to match buttons

7 inches or ribbon

Embriodery floss

I hope you will gather these thing together and sew a sweater bag with me on Monday. It will be an interesting experiment to see how this sew-a-long will work. Fun!
