Let me start by saying that there are a lot of ugly sweaters out there. The above was taken the day my Dad came home from the first Gulf War-despite tragic fashion choices, it was a very happy day. My sister Lara, sporting the pink elephant sweater, insists that my mom dressed them from Bill Cosby's personal collection. Since I was 18, and hopefully dressing myself by that point in my life, I have no one to blame but myself for the purple plaid blazer or those bangs.
Sweaters with large 3-d animals on the front (and if I remember correctly the back as well) are far beyond refashioning. However, sometimes we have sweaters that just don't fit right or are a little boring and need some help. Here is some ideas what to do with those sweaters.
Here are some that I did:
Here are some that other people did:
Cut Out and Keep
(this one is awesome there are about 80 other ideas that people made with the same pattern)
Tatter-tots and Jell-o
Love those colors!
My Two Butterflies
I think this one is just plain fun.
She comes up w/ so many great ideas, and I love this -so charmingly sweet.
I love how the 2-D and 3-D embelishments work together.
Skip to My Lou
(If I had a baby and if I didn't live in Texas, and if I had an old brown and orange stripped sweater-I would so make this)
