My Creative Space.....

It's Thursday (apparently) and once again I am playing along with Kootoyoo's My Creative Space. It is also the 1st of October and I (perhaps stupidly?) have agreed to take part in Blogtoberfest, so will be taking up the challenge of a post a day during the whole month of October. What am I going to find to post about for 31 days in a row? Watch this space!

You may remember last week I posted about my first ever Jumper Refashioning Project? Well I was so excited with the process, the result, and my ability to really do something creative that I've got another one to show you.


This project Nicole and I worked on together, and once again we have started with a 100% wool, very oversized ladies jumper from the op shop, and felted it in the hot wash. Amazing how much they shrink huh?


We hacked off the sleeves, took a chunk out of the neckline and left it attached to provide a tab with buttons, sliced her down the guts, and attached a pocket to the front. That was a classy explanation wasn't it? (Sorry, it just felt right).






The back we thought was looking a little plain, so we decided to add a 'tab thing with buttons' on the waistline of the back, just to make it a bit more interesting.




What do you think? We were really pleased with the result, and I've got to say we are absolutely hooked. More projects to follow for sure.
And welcome to Blogtoberfest!
