    Loved this! I so wish I had this eye for seeing what could be used for what. I also got a special giggle out of watching her scissors travel down her table as her machine rumbled – hahaha! (Ok, so I get a little distracted!) Thanks for sharing this – thanks to your blog you might have me changing the way I think about my old clothes!

    I saw her in a magazine article about 4 months ago. The article featured these sweaters. They were all absolutely beautiful. I so want to make one for myself. Got a whole bag of sweaters, but sadly they sit in a closet. I really enjoyed the video.

    • Hi Kim, I hope you get those sweaters out of the closet and start snipping away at them soon. They are all wishing to have a new life. Perhaps tackling a smaller project with one of them would spur you on. Thanks for visiting. Hope you’ll come back again soon and show me what you made.
      Happy sewing!

  18. I’ve seen this video before, I think somebody pinned it on Pinterest. It is so cool! I totally want to make one of these! 🙂
    Thanks for sharing!
