Re-Fashioned Vest, Needle felt appliqued Violet
I love trolling in thrift stores for great inexpensive wool sweaters, vests and such. Then refurbishing them by needle punching wool roving and yarn to embed a design into the item. Here is one of the latest refashioned vests. It is a bit too small for this little come up, big come around woman. So am offering it on Etsy, just to see if there is any interest there in this type of refashioned wearable. Though probably ought to put up 2-5 such items so there is some range and choice.
Also, am very much enjoying using the labels I got from Jennifer's Jewels.
It is really neat to add that touch to either original or refashioned items.
