What’s great about upcycling is a feeling when you don’t just throw away an old item, you give it a new life and make something new from it. I had a sweater I loved which shrank very mysteriously (no way I grew bigger, no way!). I felt so sorry to throw it away… So I decided to remake it into a handbag. Coincidentally, I had a great pair of handles at home and I could start working straight away.

So this is where I started – my dear old sweater

I cut

I sew

I added a zipper and all

And now, I have this fancy handbag!
