I made a sweater for a friend.
She loves bears.
I had a alot of fun making this sweater for her. Picking out the colors, finding just the right print for the inside of the hood.
I choose the sweaters first, about 5 of them. I love letting my hands glide over the sweaters I have chosen to cut up.
I cut the sleeves off them all, cut the seems of the bodies. I cut them apart. They transform. They are taken from their old state, they are given new life. I search for the one that will be the top, what neck do i want to keep? The sleeves become the bottom skirt. One sweater body will become the hood. Then there are the colors for the sleeves, I cut those from the scraps I have left.
This is my process and I am getting faster at it.
Every sweater I make, I learn and grow.
Man I LOVE creating!
