PaganoDesign




PaganoDesignWorks created this bag out of recycled wool sweaters, felted in hot water & appliqued together. Even the brown cotton yarn along the top edge is recycled from an unloved sweater. In all, seven sweaters laid down their lives for this bag!

Beautiful bag!

I'm so glad to have stumbled upon your blog. Most of my creatures are made from recycled clothing. Its fun to come up with new and innovative ways to create something from something destined for the landfill.

Ooooo! Thanks for the feature!!

This bag is going to be in a book called "Sweater Surgery" by Stefanie Girard from Rockport Quarry publishers. I am beside myself with excitement!!

I can't wait to see who else you find to feature. "Used is the new New!"
