To This!

What a charming child’s sweater created by Janet Metzger host of “The Empty Nest” blog.  She is graciously sharing her step-by-step tutorial with us.   In this tutorial she transforms a thrift store wool sweater into an adorable child’s garment by felting and embellishing. Two of her sweaters will be featured in the February/May issue of Altered Couture.  This is an extreme altered child’s couture sweater that makes us realize what amazing talent Janet has.  Thanks you Janet! Janet is also holding a giveaway and you may win one of her circle of love scarves so check out the rules on her blog.
