Altered Couture "No Sew Sweater"


I just returned from vacation to find my complimentary copy of the Winter issue of Altered Couture magazine. I have two items in the magazine. This is one. The 100% wool sweater has been embellished using a Embellishing (felting) machine. The flower petals are wool fabric that has been felted to the sweater. I them added the strips of a multicolored wool fabric and novelty yarn with the felting machine. The entire upcycled sweater was done with the felting machine. No sewing involved. The sweater and wool fabric were purchased at the thrift store. The novelty yarn was from my stash. I used my Huskystar ER 10 embellishing machine.

Very cute sweater - congrats on getting it published! I have the same machine - I haven't used it in quite awhile - I may need to get it out again.

Thanks for your comment on my fall journal page. And to answer your question about the leather, my DH had the hide professionally tanned - and it was dyed by the tanner. It was supposed to be dark brown, but they made it black.
