Started with this sweater, though the colour was great, the embroidery not so much. I ripped it out before thinking to take a photo, but I'm sure you've had the unfortunate chance of seeing something similar.

Anyways here is the sweater once I've ripped it all out. There were a lot of holes, some actual rips from the process, so I decided to cover it in a fabric I found a long time ago at a thriftstore.
I think it's pretty cool, too bad it's sweltering now. ooh well.


Tada! Wink

Nice! I have a lot of old sweaters with ugly embroidery on it. Covering it up it is a good idea.
