Upcycled Bag made from Goodwill finds

What do you get when you combine two Goodwill sweaters and an old grey t-shirt?

Rag rug meets slouch bag!

Perfect for my knitting treasures.

To make this I prepared my rag strips first (instructions here), braided the strips together to make a long braid, then wrapped the braid in a coil and whipstitched it together on the inside of the bag as I went.

  1. Thanks girls! Elizabeth, the design is my own, I just braided the three strips of material together and followed the old rag rug process, except that after about 5 rings I started to stack the rings. The handles were made by allowing a little slack in the top ring. I'm so glad you like it!
