LOL Magical Girl. Yes, I do. Smiley I also do swaps. Unfortunately things like this are truly one of a kind and occur only occasionally so there will never be another like this one. One of a kind for my one of a kind little pumpkin. Cheesy

That is so cute! I am new to sewing and wouldn't have thought about using a sweater to make something else out of. How do you keep the cut pieces from fraying? I'm guessing a serger, but maybe if I wanted to attempt cutting up a sweater a zig zag stitch would work. I LOVE your outfit. The hat is so whimsical.

Sally1019, I did serge it. You could use a zigzag stitch with a walking foot and it would work as well. I used as many if the existing seams as possible to minimize the work I had to do and the chance of it unraveling. To prevent unraveling you could use fray-check or something similar, though I just tried not to handle to fabric much after it was cut. Good luck and if you try this just don't stress over it too much. go with the flow. Cheesy Mistakes can be covered up by POCKETS!! Wink

Thanks to everyone for your positive and kind responses! Smiley Feedback just makes my day!
