Christmas JumperPosted: December 11, 2014 Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: craft, fabric, thrifty, upcycling 4 Comments
So, someone has a “wear a silly jumper to work” day tomorrow, and was going to buy an acrylic monstrosity for the best part of thirty quid. Instead I persuaded him that I could make him a Christmas jumper using an old item of clothing and synthetic felt.
I ended up finding a craft activity in the shops which just required sticking pre-cut shapes to other shapes to make a snowman and Santa which were then meant to go on sock shapes. Instead I stuck them to the jumper and made a tree, holly and present out of some of the sock fabric. And for the heck of it I just sewed one of the sock sections onto the back of the jumper. The top is open, so there’s scope for putting sweets in it, for bizarre novelty value.
For a quick and cheap solution I think it turned out quite well! (yes, I am aware it’s ridiculous!)
Aw, thank you jean! 🙂
