It's What I've Been Working on Wednesday!

I love cardigans & hoodies, so when I saw this cashmere hoodie in my size, I grabbed it out of the pile of sweaters that had just come in. I looked it over & found the zipper separating at the seams a little. This made me giggle, because it was probably the reason that the hoodie ended up at the thrift store... silly non-sewing people!

After 30 seconds at the sewing machine, it was like new again. While I was there, I grabbed one of my owls that I made for the owl skirts, and sewed it to the chest.

I then took a fun multi-colored seam and pinned it to the existing hoodie drawstring, and pulled it through. I think that made it a lot more fun, don't you!

I love my new hoodie :) !

What have you been working on? Add anything fun to your online shops? Feel free to post your finished recycled wool (or cashmere!) projects on my Facebook page!

I love what you did for the drawstring! That's awesome! I would be dumb and take out the old string first, then try to feed the new one through, LOL. Thanks for the idea!

I kinda did both, lol. The pin came undone halfway through, and I had to feed the rest through, but it only took a minute.

I think you're right. I think that lovely sweater wound up at the thrift because some Muggle didn't know how to fix one lousy seam! Lucky you!

nice sweater, but don't you think you should have used a single color lace? like pink only.

Thanks, everyone!

khushifairy, that's the beauty of redoing anything... it is up to the tastes of the redoer :)! I have many solid colored seams I could have used, but I liked the multicolored one.
