Valentine Sweater Refashion

This week, I had a last minute Valentine sweater idea…

It may have come from somewhere around 1982, but I enjoy a good pink and red combo around Valentines day, so I thought I’d give it a try…blast from the past, or not!

I thought I’d put a surprise heart on the back, too.

I started out with a hand-me-down, pink cardi from Target and swatch of red felted wool. (I’m pretty sure the felted wool used to be an old wool jacket that I washed in hot hot water).

I cut the swatch of felted wool up into different sized and shaped hearts, and layed them out, randomly.

Next, I pinned each of them down so I could sew around the perimeter.  (the tiny ones I just sewed a ‘V’ shape.

uhh…that’s it.

This was literally a project that popped into my head, that I had all of the supplies for and that I could whip it all out in about a half an hour…I love that kind.  Do I look like an old grandma?  haha.  Either way, I’ll be sportin’ my ‘new’ cardi on Friday (V-day)

  1. A motivating discussion is worth comment. I think that you need to write more
    about this subject matter, it might not be a taboo subject but
    usually folks don’t speak about these issues. To the next!
    Cheers!!

  2. I believe everything published made a bunch of sense.
    However, what about this? suppose you were to create a awesome headline?

    I am not saying your content isn’t solid, but what if
    you added a title to maybe get folk’s attention? I mean Valentine Sweater Refashion is kinda vanilla.
    You ought to glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create
    post headlines to grab people to click. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to grab people excited
    about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it could make your
    website a little bit more interesting.
