I was doing laundry last week and somehow missed separating my wool sweater from the baby clothes. The results, as most of you know were not anything that I could wear anymore. It might have fit an eight year old... I thought about making a coat for Victoria out of it, but the color was a drab brown that I could not see her in.
|The offending... or maybe offended sweater in question :)|
Here's the result! (There will be more now that I saw how easy and cute these are!)
|Almost done, I was still stitching the blanket stitch on the edge.|
|I call it my elf hat!|
|Side view with the flowers made out of felt. Nat, for whom this was for likes muted colors, my next one will be a lot more colorful I think!|
I loved re-purposing this sweater. A few years back, it would have just gone out with the trash, but now that I strive to recycle everything in my life, I was able to come up with something fun and cute to make with it.
And it made me feel great that I was able to come up with the design in two seconds flat as well. Of course it's not exactly the hardest project, but the more I work with 3-D designs the happier I am with the results.
Thank you for checking this out!
