I made this sweater/hoodie for Phizzychick in the BE AWESOME swap..... she has now has received it .....so I thought I would share it with the rest of you.............

I started out with 7 (i think) old, out of style, wool sweaters.....felted them.... and started cutting.....no pattern, no guide......just crossed my fingers and wished for the BEST......i think it came out pretty well for my first go at something like this.......









and the leaf I was going to add to the sweater......but then decided it would be better as a broach.....it is made with silk and seed beads, and I wasn't sure how well it would do in the washing machine





and some added extras...........




thanks for looking............ and a BIG thank you to imafundork, my awesome model!!!
