This week has been a tad busy but rest assured, I do have some crafty ideas in the works! I am planning at least two projects just from the cardigan/sweater pictured above. It has been a while since I wore it and it will not stay buttoned unless I put a couple of safety pins. So I decided to re-purpose it and change it. I have already cut off the black “wrist” part of this sweater which I will be making into one or two cuff bracelets. For the rest of the sweater I am thinking of making it into a vest by cutting off the rest of the sleeves and making the “arm hole” a little wider. I do not own ANY vests and hope that this little project of mine turns out as desired. :)
Lately I have been keeping almost any clothing scraps, trinkets, and recyclables that I may be able to use for future projects. Now, I am really not a pack-rat and hope that I never turn into one! I like to keep things organized and keep what I need and toss out or give away what I do not need.
For anyone reading this, if you need to get rid of anything I can give it a good home: yarn, fabric, paints, clothes, shoes. I currently am not really employed (just a little side job) so at the very least I can pay for shipping of your item(s) if you do not live near me.
What can I do with the rest of the stripy sleeves? :)
