I had suddenly an urge of transforming something... I didn't have much time left until the kids came back home from school.

I searched the stash of 'to be transformed' clothes, picked up this BIG sweater... and got started!

I did some necessary Chopping

I noticed while working that the inside of the fabric was alright too!

Added some thumb holes to the recycled sleeves

This is what I came up with 30 minutes later!


I certainly enjoy my 'old is new' sweater!  
And already got some compliments for the design... before they knew I made it myself  Shocked

DO YOUR OWN TRANSFORMATION!
