the angora sweater

I have an angora sweater I have had for 25 years.  I paid big bucks for this sweater in the day - and I can't bear to part with it.  Pink is NOT my color nowadays and I can't ever see wearing this sweater again........

So, I was thinking about dying it - and making it into a purse.  A purse with a swooped top edge would make the best of the embellishments.  I don't know if I can force myself to cut up this sweater, but maybe if the right pattern came along.  I did some searching this morning, but didn't come up with anything that called out to me.  A pattern that was curved at the top, probably a zipper closure, and didn't have piecing on the front/back panels.  Also, something not too too big (I usually don't even carry a purse, but I do occasionally when I can't carry a wallet in my pocket instead).  Any patterns come to mind anybody?
