it figures

I got up early, went down to work out and my Jillian Michaels Wii game is messed up..... WAH

OK... tonight is DD's GS Christmas party (yup it's early.. not the leader's fault tho) so I had to scramble to make a gift that was suitable for those ladies...


Recycled felted sweater trees didn't take much of the sweater at all... the two tone one is from two sweaters. The center is a piece of a wire hanger and I glued some posterboard on the bottom to cover the hanger







I think I'll make a big one for here at home. I grabbed the perfect star for the top from Ollies yesterday..... with some beads sewn on it it coud be fab! But I didn't have time... between the baby sweaters and everything else this month brings... YIKES!

I hope they like their little decorations.

Thanks for stopping by! Fellow pear here saying that I love the tree. I have not made anything yet from a recycled sweater, but I have a purse started. I hope to get to that soon. I also have another felted sweater waiting to be made into a tote but my son is borrowing it for the season. I love your wish list. I, too, always wanted a grand piano and 3 years ago my wish came true. It's been used, so no need to worry about scratches - it came with them! My kids play it and it's really loud and echoes, but I love it. I hope you get your wish some day.

What a fun idea! I've never thought of a tree made with felted sweaters (though I use them for all sorts of other projects). Great idea!

Visiting you from PEAR!
