Sweaters anyone?

Christmas is coming and all I want for Christmas is your old sweaters!

I saw this tutorial on Pintrest (If you don’t know what Pinterest is, check it out. It is a mecca of tutorials, recipes,photos and loads of inspiration) and fell in love. As soon as I get enough sweaters, I am making it!

I have been toying with the idea of a sweater quilt for a while but didn’t know how to go about it. I thought I would have to use interfacing and I didn’t want to do that. This woman felted the sweaters before cutting out her blocks. Smart.

So… now all I need is sweaters. I have a small stack but if anyone is going through closets and weeding out the old stuff to donate, consider wrapping up the old wool sweaters and addressing them to me! I would much appreciate them 🙂

And that concludes my 2011 letter to Santa!
