Fun with recycled Jumpers

I had been given a paritally felted mens woolen jumper
from a friend.
I cut of the turtle neck, slashed it open on an angle, and then felted it some more.
Then I took some of the spare felt pieces and made tabs for buttons and re-stitched them on.
I added pockets  with a little felt bird and also some hand running stitch for colour. 
These are so fun to do and i have already started the next one!

Mim I love this. The bird and handstitching are inspired. And yes, I'd love you to be in on my PIF. I'll have great fun making you something!
