What materials did you use? an old cashmere sweater that I could not wear any longer as it had holes in the elbows.... It was not huge so I did not felt it, but worked it with the serger instead of with the sewing machine to make sure it will not fray. I will be using the sweater at my dance classes to warm up....

What are you most proud of? I was able to tame my serger :-)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? it is fun and quite easy, I like the concept very much as I am used to wear my sweaters so much that I make holes in the elbows, it is such a shame to throw them away when all the rest is still good....

Was this sweater part of the Project Upcycle class? I have been looking at this class wondering if I should take it or not...this is super cute!

Hello, yes it was part of project upcycle - I found the class very useful, especially as I am used to sweaters with holes, staines... now I can recycle them!!! :-) thank you very much!
