This hip messenger bag might be the “HIPPEST” purse you will ever have! With a cross-body strap and plenty of room to store all your goods, you’re going to love this purse.
Make the bag from felted upcycled wool sweaters and you’ll have a unique, one-of-a-kind purse!
The inside zippered pocket is great for keeping your keys and other accessories. If you are not into sewing zippers, no worries, there are instructions to sew a simple inside pocket that is nice to hold your cell phone, and a nifty place to hold a pen, without a zipper!
The easy-to-follow instructions and the many descriptive photos make this sewing project a snap! Pattern includes instructions for 3 different bag styles.
Just think of all the endless possibilities of sweater colors and texture combinations? You will not be able to make just one bag. Sew one for your friend, sister, mother…………..
Braided fleece, which can also be recycled, is made into a unique and comfortable cross-the-body strap. Who would have thought?
The finished bag measures approximately 9 1/2 x 9 1/2 inches, with plenty of room for all your goods. I love wearing this purse!
