New Year’s Eve is on the way.
Ring in the new year with this adorable DIY winter sweater tote.
Along with all of the self-improvement resolutions you make this New Year’s Eve, be sure to include a declaration to make a new sweater tote to go with your winter outfits. If they all turn out this cute, it’s a resolution that’ll be easy to keep.
All you need is an old thrift store sweater….
a couple of wooden handles and some cute fabric for a lining.
It’ll take you less than an hour to make and when you’re finished you’ll have a cute winter tote perfect for carrying your laptop and your favorite book. 😉

Thanks so much for pinning, Dawn! Happy New Year!
I love this purse! I may just have to copy it LOL in a couple different colors
Thank you! Feel free to “copy” away!!! Happy New Year to you and your family!
Ooh lovely! I did a similar thing with my daughter’s jumper dress & hubby’s shirt (not as professional looking as yours though!!) 🙂
Thank you, VJ. I bet your cowl was lovely. Thanks for your nice comment. Happy New Year!
Love the tote!
Something else though: I wish there was a like option for your posts. I read more often than I comment, because usually I read blogs on Mondays (after volunteering at the local Food Bank all day and being too tired to craft myself). Sadly I am most often also too tired to write comments. Don’t laugh! It’s true! I am too darn tired to type lol. However I would love to let you know I was here and at least like the article…. lol
Oh well. Just know that I am here way more often than you know hahahahaha.. No.. I am not stalking this blog at all 😀
Thanks for being so supportive. Do you subscribe through WordPress? I’m surprised there isn’t a like button at the top. Thanks for letting me know that you’re enjoying the posts. It really means a lot to me. Happy 2015!
I am subscribed through wordpress, but I have your blog linked in my sidebar. (always love to share good things with my readers) so usually I do the round from my blog, rather than the feed 🙂 I am such a routine sloth….
I’d love to have this awesome book! I am on a mission to reuse and recycle!

Thanks so much for pinning!
Such a cute bag! Where do you get your wood handles?
Thanks! The wood handles came from another bag that our puppy chewed up. Happy 2015!
This tote is such a cute idea. I have been saving a few of my favorite old sweaters, knowing they have an extra life in them. I’ve pinned the tutorial to my pinterest board “Cut Up Those Old Sweaters”.
Thanks for pinning and have fun with this!
I LOVE the idea of repurposing items no longer being used!! I’ve been a crafter my whole life and love to create items made from other things! I would thoroughly love to have and would use this book!!! Excited about the possibility of winning it!! Thanks!!
You are so very welcome, KateE! Here’s to a 2015 filled with repurposing!
Love this idea, and it fits in with my New Year resolution not to buy anything new for at least the month of January! Thank you and Happy New Year x
Thank you, Gill! May your new year be filled with refashions!
Just found your blog. I will be here for days pinning. Such inspiration! Thanks for entering me in the drawing.
Awwwwwwww….thanks, Cathy! Happy New Year!
