Warm and Woolly

Here are a couple of jumper-to-cardigan refashions i did to keep me warm at work over winter:

First this woolly, slightly felted thrifted turtleneck -
cut down the middle, some nice big wooden printed buttons added and buttonholes sewed:

Also a cream jumper (no before pic) - sliced down the middle, facing added, and a button and loop closure. i also added a couple of colourful buttons on one sleeve as a nice bit of detail.

Thanks for reading! xx

Cute sweaters! I never got around to remaking my sweater pile this year, but maybe I'll use some of your ideas next time around.
