A CARDIGAN, ENVELOPE AND A RAZOR

being sick all week I didn’t get my entry in on time for the judging, but that’s ok, I finished it! talk about a challenge, I decided to take an old cardigan that was bound for the thrift store & recreate it into a scarf

challenge1

I had found the inspiration to make the pattern from here

yep a good ole envelope 

challenge2 the razor is my ideal of a new tool,”defuzzer”  is that even a word? according to spell check it’s not lol!, anyways it worked great!

challenge3

so I began to cut my strips out & sewing them together & waa la!

maybe one side down

challenge4

maybe sew the ends together ?

challenge5

maybe pulled through & thicker around the neck?

challenge6

challenge7

Great way to reuse an old cardigan!!! This will keep you snuggly and warm and the lovely browns will co-ordinate with so many outfits. Hope you are feeling better.
