From Mommy's Sweater to Harley's

This sweater was a favorite of mine and even though I shrunk it, I still kept it thinking I could still use it for something else. This was given to me by my sister-in-law like four years ago and I still have it until now. Since it's been sitting in my closet for years and didn't know what else to do with it, it came to my mind to use it for my little boy HF. The size was perfect and all I had to do was to cut in the middle so I can use it as a jacket. The sweater has sleeves, but I cut if off and used it for something else. I will share it to you by tomorrow on what I did with the sleeves. Since I cut the sleeves off, I had some clothes that I don't wear anymore and I used that for the sleeves, the pockets and other things.

I also cut the bottom of the sweater and used that as a collar. Just pin the cut off bottom and sew along the neckline as the collar.

I added the sleeves made out different fabrics, then the pockets, the metal snaps and my model is looking good. Here is my finished product!

If you happen to have clothes that you don't use anymore, give it some thought and come up with an idea to recycle it instead of ending in the landfill. I have some other ideas for old clothes to share to you so stay tuned.

Now that I see it on HF, I want to add a zipper on the front for more security and he won't have the chance of taking it off because he hates having to wear clothes. He just wants to be naked pretty much.
