Gosh how I loved this hoodie!
But unfortunately it got washed a little to hot a few to many times.
I intentionally finished off the unintentional felting process and have been using it for various wee projects.
First it got made into these handwarmers, and just recently into a seed pocket for Linda's Seed Swap Party.
I stared by cutting out one of the front pockets, which meant that I had no side seams to sew up!! Rémi made me a wooden button and I used the hood cord for fastening it up.
Then came the hard part - for me anyhow - embroidering a little seed evolution design on the front.
I've never embroidered more that faces on toys so this was a bit of a challenge. My sister-in-law recommended using simple running and chain stitches.
But I must say, I'm very motivated to learn more!
I even whipped up this handle for my new cast-iron pan, but no pretty flowers on this one. It's hard enough getting Richard to cook as it is, I don't want to go making the utensils look all 'girly'!!
