Upcycle Handmade Tote

This OOAK handmade tote from a felled 100% sweater sleeve .
It's approx. 15" long and lined with beautiful batik.
Two little applique hearts on inside near the straps.(straps about 37")
Straps were made from sweater front edge border, and reinforced with twill tape to prevent the wool from stretching.
I embellished the strap with ziggity zaggaty stitches!
Sari silk along the edge of the purse, and decorative ribbon hand stitches above it.

Two purple buttons on each end of strap. and one to attach the knitted i cord.
Needle felted circles on front of purse with tiny beads
