I’ve had this plain brown sweater for years and years-from way back when I was a mother of 2. I like it, but it’s boring.
I love this happy little tree fabric. I thought it would be fun to mimic the little blossoms on the fabric and make a big blossom for my sweater. I got an e-mail from our renters in MD last night, informing us that our house has sprung a few leaks (they've had an earthquake, hurricane, tropical storm, floods, and a tornado the last 2 weeks) and so I was in need of a little happy.
I cut some petals out of fusible webbing and ironed it to the wrong side of the fabric. Then I cut them out, ironed them down and stitched them on my sweater.
Check out my new earrings that my hubby brought me from Suriname. He said they were smallest he found in the entire country. They make them out of burnt wood.
Believe it or not, we took about a dozen pics and this was the best one. Good thing I have no plans on being a model.
