Here's another recycled sweater project, this time for my partner fiddlegirl8 in the Crafted Cushion Swap R2! This pillow features a needle-felted fox walking through a mossy forest of bare trees. I really liked the stripe on the sweater, so I decided to leave it, and I think it looks nice and agreeable with the direction of the trees.







I also threw in a pair of red mushrooms on the back side just for fun. Grin

It's gorgeous. Fiddlegirl8 must be so pleased.

I love that you used a jumper as the base. I didn't realise you could even do that.

Why yes, I am pleased, to say the least.  I was breathless after opening my package from PerfectlyBohemian.  It's a beautiful art piece, and I am so happy she made it for me.  Smiley

The red stripe is a great part of the front - I just love the pillow cover - so beautiful and it's mine!  Thank you again, PB - you're awesome!  Cool
