Upcycling

I knit these socks last year. The yarn was not strong or suitable for socks and these develpoed holes at heel. So, I threw them in the washing machine and felted them. Then, did a quick surgery on them to come up with a drawstring bag. The leg part is the fair-isle front and back panels while the sides are formed by felted pieces from the foot.
