When Scarves Go Bad
My mom went to Scotland a few years ago, and brought back scarves that were knit with the buchanan tartan (My family's Tartan), Unfortunately my sisters scarf ended up in the wash and because it is wool it felted and shrunk which made it kind of not usable as a scarf. So I redid it into a wristlet purse for Christmas for my sister.

This is a modified, simplified version of the link provided. I didnt add a liner because the felted wool was really thick and with a liner it wouldnt go through my sewing machine. Its really heavy duty though, my sister will have a hard time ruining this purse.

She did like, she keeps knotting up the chain though Happy... I think thats just her though, no one else had problems.

Definitely post your version I would love to see it! I hope it turns out well!

That looks so good.
Ahhh, I got a scarf from a charity shop, didn't know what to do with it as it's a bit too short for my liking.
And now I know, thanks to you.
Did your sister like?
