Autumn Green

What can you do with a pretty Autumn knit sweater that is all stretched out from years of wear?  Well cut it up and make a throw pillow of course :)

I was in an Autumn mood, so I made this one today by bordering it with strips of cotton fabric in some lovely fall colors.  This one is for sale here in my Etsy Store

There are many ways to work with upcycled items, and giving them new life.  I'm busy recycling some other old sweaters, so check back soon ~ there just might be a little tutorial on how I make mine :)

Enjoy the day!

Hi neighbor....I just love this! Wow. I want one now. Do you teach this at the shop? I know we have to get together for lunch very soon but I am just working way too much. I will try to email you with a couple of dates so we can make a plan!
