What's this? I actually made progress on a project? Yeah, graduate school has been kicking my butt and not leaving a lot of time for fun things, like hacking fabric apart to make soft and squishy things. I did make a cute little turtle that didn't take very long at all. In fact, I think I like him so much I'll make a few more, or go with an underwater theme, and maybe put together a mobile for my sister's soon-to-be-baby.
This was made by cutting apart four 100% merino sweaters, and I picked the softest ones I could find at that. There was the black argyle, a nice GAP striped but had too many holes to wear, a burgundy one full of holes, and a dark charcoal gray. Hey, if Goodwill wants to sell holey sweaters for $0.15 on sale, I won't say no!
Also, thank you to Resweater's blog for giving me this idea and for having a lot of inspiring ideas in general.
