This was just a plain pull over sweater..I tore it apart and added lots of vintage doileys and fabrics and now it ties in front...So fun and cute..No more boring sweater..
Also was a pull over boring plain sweater..FABULOUS now..GO green and recycle..I used all recycled fabrics to make this patchwork sweater a long sweater/coat..Ties in front..pure perfection....
FAVE..XOXO..so girlie and sweet..This was just a plain zipper sweater hoodie.I ripped it apart and made sweet ruffles for the front all the way down, and ties to close it..The elbows have adorable plaid patches on it..
This was a turtleneck sweater..Look at it now..Long recycled tiered skirt sewn on with vintage grannie squares and a scarf for the tie closure..has some fringe around the neck..Perfect for a sweater coat, when its not cold enough for a winter coat, but still cold out..
And how about this fabulous hoodie..Added bell sleeves from the legs of a pair of lounge pants..lots of heart appliques and patches..So cute..

These are a few sweaters and hoodies I have turned from ugly boring pieces of clothing into fabulous one of a kind creations...Just plain sweaters,hoodies..Now look at them..Just takes lots of imagination.
