Well, I used my last big piece of sweater material...an odd shaped one at that... and a couple of scraps for the small rosettes to make this neck warmer/cowl/muffler/sweater collar...I wasn't quite sure what to call it, but went with what made the most sense. ;-)
I took the odd shaped piece (which was actually from the shoulder of the sweater), trimmed it up a bit and made a little decorative trim on it.
In hindsight, I probably shouldn't have used a wavy yarn to do the blanket stitch all the way around.
Once I go started, though, I couldn't stop myself. I love the navy yarn with the orange sweater color combination and I think the wavy lines might give it a bit more personality.
After the main piece was trimmed out, I set to making a couple of rosettes from the little scraps I had. I hand-stitched the bottom of the rosettes to hold them together and then sewed them to the neck warmer.
My almost-10-year-old thought it was a pretty cute accessory too. I'm thinking I may have to share mine with her. We're already sharing shoes, what's one more thing? Thanks for stopping by today! I sure hope you've enjoyed the Orange Sweater Projects as much as I have. If nothing else, I hope they have sparked your creativity and shown you how to repurpose old sweaters into unique crafts and accessories. Did you miss any of the other projects? Which was your favorite?
