Fun *Upcycling* Project :)

My daughter & I made these fun mittens while she's home from college ( made hers last winter) from an old sweater I found at the ~ you guessed it~ Goodwill :) Had a small hole in it so I didn't feel too horrible cutting it up. Here's a link to the video we used for the idea ~ we didn't *felt* the sweater, or piece them like she did, but the end result is the same. It took me awhile to get the concept through my head...but it's really easy once you do! Here you can see where I cut the pieces from the sweater ( and my nosy cat who has to be in the middle of things :) I'm going to keep the scraps and maybe make something else- I just love the pattern & colors!

Ready for super cold winter! ><>

Words of Comfort :)

I made this for a gal I know who just received some pretty hard news :( I'm hoping when she sees it, that she'll be encouraged. If God is for us, who can be against us? Love this new SU big doily stamp! The verse is Heart & Soul ><>
