Felted Sweater Knitting Basket

This is a knitting basket I made from a felted wool sweater. I saw the tutorial on Martha Stewart's talk show, then found the tutorial on her website here. Part of it is hand sewn and other parts I used my machine. The hardest part of the thing was finding the perfect sweater at a thrift shop. I have to thank my mom for this find because she sent me this beautiful hand knit Irish sweater! I felt a little guilty felting it, but it is now filled with Noro Silk Garden and Kureyon and my most recent craft book purchase, Handknit Holidays. blogged
