Alterknits Felted Sweater Tote

This bag was once a sweater… 100% wool, Old Navy men’s large sweater, purchased for $2.50 at a thrift store. The original sweater was machine knit with a 3×1 rib, so the felt is soft and floppy. Not perfect for a tote, but not too bad for a first attempt at felting. Live and learn, right?
