2  Bottle Cozy from reclaimed sweater in Needlework: Completed Projects by bretta on: November 11, 2009 07:46:34 PM


I took a class on surface design at the John C. Campbell Folk School in January and finally got around to doing a little project! I started with a felted sweater sleeve and just started stitching, kind of doing a sampler of stitches I learned at the class. Pretty basic stuff.

And, I know it's kinda' dorky, but a little somethin' on the bottom for someone else to read while I drink  Roll Eyes



The drinking glasses from my kitchen are exactly the same diameter as my water bottle, so I inserted one into the sleeve while I was stitching so I had something to "work against" without scratching my bottle. I used blue painter's tape and marked 1/4 inch increments on it to sort of keep things evenly spaced. I also worked the entire body of the sleeve first before stitching the bottom on...that way I could access the inside from either end for ease of stitching. It's obvious, I'm sure, but I also stitched all the embroidery on the bottom circle BEFORE I attached it to the body.
