Hey everyone

I need your help! I'm involved in a GetCrafty recycled clothing swap, where everyone sends an item of clothing they no longer wear to someone else, who reconstructs it and sends it back. I am totally stuck with mine, and I need to get some suggestions somewhere my swapee won't see me!!!

She's a very cool crafty girl from Portugal, and she has sent me this sweater, navy blue acrylic with a rainbow star on the front and the words Color Star in yellow stamped below the star. Because the sweater isn't wool I can't felt it, otherwise I would have 101 things to do with it. And the star is REALLY big, like the size of your hand. The sweater is just a crew neck simple style.

I was thinking of making a tote from it, but that seems so boring. It's too floppy to make into a hat, and because of the positioning of the star, I cant chop it into a halter or something like that.

Please help me out with some crafty ideas - I have just two weeks to come up with something fabulous!
