New Sweater

Ta-daaa! An instant refashion project!

It started from this and with some adjustments I turned it into this:

Some hand sewing :)


It took me one evening and one morning to finish it! We had our syjunta yesterday evening, I got inspired by my fellow crafters, got an idea and knew I wanted to wear it ('cause I wanted something new) for a coffee date I had with my best friend today. So I put the scissors into a felted wool sweater and for the first time I am really satisfied with the result!


I wore my new sweater with my vintage high waist jeans (unfortunately they do not look so vintage high waist-y in the picture...) and the wrist warmers my mother in law knitted from wonderful Noro yarn. I felt FABULOUS! That is a feeling a staying at home mom needs to indulge in once in a while! It was also lovely to meet my best friend for a coffee, since she lives 100 km away.

How was your day? I hope you had some good things coming your way!

All the best for the weekend!

Vilket lysande exempel på doredo! Och med ett vackert resultat! Nu blev jag inspirerad att sätta saxen i något gammalt, trist! Tack!
