Remaking Sweaters into Warm, Colorful Garments
The sweater your mom made you years ago; the one you found at Goodwill but is way too small; the one you are tired of wearing; the one you accidently washed on a hot wash--any of these felted and cut and sewn together can be made into a beautiful skirt, poncho, or tea cozy. In the class we’ll talk about choosing sweaters, about felting, about using particular features on the original for the finished garment. We’ll design simple projects and fit them; finishing stitchery techniques will also be taught. Expect to leave the class with a finished garment and many ideas for more projects.
