I still have a stash of felted sweaters that need upcycling. They sit in a bag for life and occasionally call to me from the corner of my sewing room!
Today was one of those days.
So out came the pale turquoise, embroidered sweater by Jackpot.
I have already made a little lined bag using one of the sleeves.
Today I used a little of the other sleeve to make a phone cosy.
Wipso said her phone is not out of use long enough to need a cosy but some folk like to pop their phone/camera or ipod into a little pouch when carrying it round.
So with a bit of ingenuity, I made a little cosy using the cuff from the sleeve for a turn over top.
Its lined with bright pink cotton fabric and looks rather cute, I think.
Then, of course there was just enough left to make a little heart-shaped "dumfling".
Its now a little brooch, embellished with silk, wool and beads.
Now I was on a roll, so out came a scrap from the tweedy blue/grey sweater that I had used for another bag, now in the blog shop. I dumfed an oblong piece with silk and wool and then beaded it up.
How's that for upcycling?
I will probably pop them in the blog shop later - if Wipso will allow it!!!
