Some pumpkins I’ve carved in the last few years:
Good Ol’ Yoda (2008)
Where The Wild Things Are (2007)
An Owl with a mouse? (2006)
Owl and Charissa’s Celtic Cross (2005)
Turtle (2008 yeah I did two pumpkins this year…)
So maybe you’re actually really sick of looking at this brightly colored blanket, but here it is in FINISHED form. Sheesh, took me long enough to get the pictures up, but it’s actually been done for a bit.
Toasty warm with some piggies
Eh, pay no attention to the dirty floor background.
Hooray, one more project done!!
Sewn into strips:
The ugly backside which kind of looks a little cool:
And the top:
I actually already have the middle blanket and the bottom blanket attached, but I am not by my camera right now, so you’ll just have to wait to see the finished product, but it’s so very warm and cozy and stretchy and snuggly. And Derek, it’s not scratchy! They’re all nice comfy fabrics, not itchy wool.
So I know that sometimes people think that I go a bit overboard with my thirft store finds, but I swear this will be cool.
So I went to Bargain World and found an assortment of used sweaters, all of the cashmere type variety. (I say cashmere type because they’re not really nice sweaters, but just the comfy, soft fabrics) So I bought a bunch of old sweaters in lots of colors and they were all 50% off the already ridiculously low prices, so I bought lots of them.
Here they are in their original state:
I just spent all morning cutting them up (and my knuckles are bruised from the scissors I was using) and now I have this:
what didn’t make the cut:
And the good pieces:
Piecing it together:
Now the sewing begins!
