Green DIY: Cardigan Bag

I have some clothing in bags that I no longer wear and I wanted to use an ill fitting cardigan and a scarf that I hadn't been able to style right quite yet.
1. button cardi & cut under armpit 2. pin the bottom 3. sew bottom & along buttoned up section 4. create straps from the scarf, cut out design & then use embroidery thread to attach design.
It is a little hard to tell in these pictures but I only sewed the straps to the bag and then tied them in a bow at the shoulder, which leaves room to adjust the strap for across the body or over the shoulder. I also added a button because the cardi material was pretty flimsy.
There you go! Just another green DIY! I have another one up my sleeve too, I just need to make it! 
Thanks for stopping in!
