recycling sweaters

If I start with a worn out sweater from my wardrobe (which I got at a thriftstore last summer), and I cut off the arms and sew darts in the neckline, then take in the sides, and sew on a few decorative buttons, what I get is a sweater dress for Hypatia. Yay - what was basically junk (stains, stretched out, blah), is now a new dress for her.

  1. That's too awesome! I love it! I would have never thought of something like that! Great idea! You are so creative!

  2. I love this! The ladybug buttons really make it extra special... what a cutie!
