Inspired by this Martha Stewart project (she usually drives me crazy, but this struck me the right way)

http://www.marthastewart.com/needle-felted-sweaters?lnc=c479cf380e1dd010VgnVCM1000005b09a00aRCRD&rsc=videohome_Homepage_Homepage

I made this needle felted sweater for my sweet, sweet niece.





The sweater is a men's XL wool sweater from the thrift store that I felted in my washing machine and cut up to sew into the toddler-sized sweater.  Then, I free-handed the design.

It's not incredibly sophisticated, but my niece seems to think she's beautiful in it.

Next up, a skull and crossbones for my nephew!

She is definitely beautiful and lucky to have you as a crafty auntie!  Great work!  I love the combo of recycled and new materials as well as the grays with the pastel floral images.  Will you be my auntie?  Smiley

SOOOO adorable!  Your felted sweater has a simple elegance that is perfect for a beautiful little girl like your niece!  Looks like it will fit her for awhile, too, which is good since you put so much effort into it.  I can never find inexpensive, 100% wool sweaters at thrift stores around here.... I'm so envious!

GREAT job!  I can't believe that was your FIRST NF project!!  Your niece is beautiful in her beautiful handmade sweater/jacket.  What a great gift!
