I bought this simple black cardigan with 2 buttons closure in a second hand shop. It's in very good condition but was too boring...

So I crocheted a rainbow net for adding lenght to the bodice and sleeves and created a fairy pricess with rainbow crinoline, colorful butterfly wings, button flower and tulle bouquet, sequin and bead eyes, french braided ponytail and fringe... EX3

I used recycled yarns (mixed wool and quality acrylic).

Everywhere I go in the World I buy yarns! In this project the colors are from 2 different market places and a yarn shop in Italy, Vienna (Austria) and Hungary. Many times I use recycled yarns and I buy them from second hand shops too! The important is the color, if I see one that makes me happy I buy it! Ok, I'm a shop-alcoholic... Grin

Ooooooooooooh!!! Rainbows AND fairies! This is SUCH a cool cardigan. I really admire your skills with yarn and needles. That fairy on the back takes the cake. This is unboring to the 9th factor. :O)

Thank You! I'm so in LOVE with owls and it's pretty easy to make an owl applique! On internet I've seen many wonderful designs with tutorials for it too! Good luck for Your project (even if it will be a bat)!  Wink
