Out with the old

Remember how you are supposed to remember not to wash and dry your wool sweaters?  Well, I forgot.  My sweater is now about size 4T!

So, I cut off the bottom of it, turned under the top to make a casing, sewed the front closed, and Inara has a new felted wool skirt!  I was thinking of using the sleeves to make a few coin purses or something.  Any ideas?

AWESOME!!!! Great idea.

I realized last night that the sleeves fit Inara perfectly as leggings - I just have to figure out something at the top to hold them up. The bodice area fits her perfectly also! I think I can set some sleeves and lengthen the bodice with a fabric to finish off the outfit with a shirt, too! All that will be wasted now is just a few trims and snips! All that I will have added to it is a little fabric for the sleeves/bodice! I love it when things work out like this!

What a great idea! I have always wanted to felt something. But first I have to knit something... LOL I love the leggings idea, too! It will make a great outfit!
