I wanted to do this challenge in the worst way... I combed the Goodwill piling my cart full of ugliness and then it occurred to me.. "I need to make something that I could really use!" and I needed a pillow for the couch... So I ended up with 1 item.. a horrible sweater for $3.99.
 I washed it in hot water and felted it and got this! FYI I love this pillow!

the ugly sweater... eeeewwwww

That's really cute! It's funny how the pattern that looks so ugly on the sweater looks great on the owl!

I love this!
I have been debating on how to redo my couch cushions. The one we have now are just so bulky, and we have to remove them if we want to lay down, and watch a movie, or cuddle on the couch.  I might make a couple like this for the couch.  I luurve owls! And I love that little guy.... too cute! <3

That is definitely one very cute owl from one very ugly sweater.  It's a transformation of butterfly proportions.
