old is new again

embroidering my cardigan
Recently, I saw a hand embroidered sweater in a shop, for sale for $128. I thought, I can do that! So I went home and stitched on my cardigan.

I've always liked this little cotton cardigan, but it was sort of ordinary. Now, it's kinda cute.

Reminds me of waaaay back, when I stitched, probably just like this, along the leg of my bell-bottom jeans. Some things never change...

  2. My cat believes an outfit is never complete until it is accessorized with a bit of feline fur. Beautiful embroidery Jane!

  6. Reminds me of when I decided to make my own 'designer' jeans because I refused to pay $40 for a stupid swan on a pocket! Price is a great creative motivator!
