now that it is getting hot i finally got around to doing a little makeover on a sweater i got a while back at an estate sale.
i loved the knitted pattern of this sweater.
i knew i wouldn't wear it but i bought it anyway.
initially i had plans to make a little bag or or pillow cover, but then i decided to try to make a mini version for ella.
i took some pictures of her in it before i added the velvet ribbon to the other side.
it just didn't look finished with it only on one side.
here is how i made it
i used one of ella's sweaters as a size guide.
i used my serger on the bottom of the sweater and sewed the trim on.
for the trim along the opening i just hand stitched a velvet ribbon on it.
this was the perfect cover up for a couple of little stains.
it's ella approved!!
