I have to first mention that I have had this sweater for years and years. Then two years go I decided to felt it using the washing machine and the dryer on HOT.
I then followed the measurements from Lemon Squeezy and cut the sweater in two 14 x 11 rectangles.
Putting the right sides together, I sewed three sides together. The handles was taken from an old purse of my Mom's that she no long wanted. I sewed that to the side of the liner. Putting the two pieces together and then sewed the front together and flipped it right side out. And for all other sewers that should have worked but sadly for me it NEVER DOES!! Seriously I do this all the time, I can never remember which way goes which. So in full disclosure of how not everything turns out perfect, I had to cut the bottom off the lining to get the purse to flip the right way. This turned our ok because some where in squaring up the sweater I lost a few inches and then liner was now bigger then the outer part. But after re-sewing the liner it worked out ok.
See not all is perfect. But since this is for me and I don't care it works out ok.
Here is a close up of the detail work. And here is the final product:
