We all made fun of it's bizarre qualities but once I had a good look I liked the felt flowers. Cutting the flowers off and adding it to a cute sweater of Katherine's could give this tacky number a new life.
While unpacking my bag, Katherine spotted the shirt right away. "Ohhhh, is this for me?! I love it!". I explained that I was going to cut off the flowers and add them to something else but she could have the sparkly shirt. "It's perfect for a poisonous frog costume!" and then started to put it on. I don't guess anyone has died of wearing second hand clothes before they're washed. I try not to think about it.
Once I started cutting the flowers off I realized that someone had cut each flower out then painstakingly blanket stitched all around each flower. It was a labor of love for some little girl, I'm glad I bought it. Here are my end projects:
I sewed snaps onto the sweater and the back of the flowers so they come off for washing.
