Pretty in pinkWhen my mother was here she thrifted this beautiful sweater in pink and green shades. I wanted to have it too, but it fitted her perfectly… Until she washed it…

It was wool and shrunk to half it’s size, unfortunately for her. Fortunately for me though. I couldn’t wear it now eather but I cut it up and used the felted sweater to make a pair of Mom Mittens for my mother:

Mittens for mom - Mom Mittens
I hand sewed them and then just added a pink silk ribbon for that “little extra”. She likes them and tried to “catch” a dragon fly when I took this photo.
