i added in a old purple chiffon curtin and remnants of a leftover leopard scarf.....i have worn it out and i get really good reactions!! its very special to me too. for the longest time i didn't know what to do with this old sweater that i loved to see my grandmother wear.......she was very crafty....so how better to remember her then to make something new with it!!

THANKS!! your the best!! so here is what i did.... i cut the curtain and sweater into a bunch of tiny long strips and then just knotted them in a reoccurring diamond shape pattern then when i was finished i knotted on the leopard material and strategically placed it so it looked gaudy! then i cut it down at the end...for a more hobo look. Grin

it was alot of fun!
