Sew, What's New?

Curating sewing and quilting talent, techniques, and tutorials, since 1997.

I used part of the same angora sweater I used for the shrug I made (see other photo) - and I still have enough to make something else!

Well I really DO love it... if/when I "play" with some of the sweaters I got from the thrift store I'll post the results (good OR bad) here for you to see! HAPPY THANKSGIVING! ;p

Nope, I don't do felting. It is pink angora cut from a sweater and the design section is cut from a different chenille sweater. The textures were already there.

Cannot tell from the photo, but did you "felt" the wool first?

No, I didn't use a pattern. I don't have a pic of the shape, but basically its a square with a "U" shape cut out of the top, witht the two points where the tassels are. Some of the tassels are strips of the chenille sweater I used for the trim, plus some matching yarns with different textures. I like to mix and match.
Thanks for the nice comment!

Okay, this is SUPER cool! Looks like you used the ribbed collar of the for the brim, or is that the ribbed waist band? Did you use a "pattern" for the design/shape or what? With the ends flopped over I cannot tell what the flat shape looks like. Do you have a photo of it lying flat? Did you make the tassles out of pulled yarns from the sweater or other you had that matched? LOVE THIS!!!
