sprucing up a sweater

i was going through some sweaters that i haven’t worn lately and pulled out this cute norwegian sweater. i found it at the thrift store over a year ago, and though i’ve pulled it out a few times to wear, i’ve never actually worn it. i don’t really know why, because i like the pattern, color and fit.

i had these pieces of embroidered felt left over from another project and i thought they would look really cute appliqued onto the front…

spruced-up sweater!

i think i just turned it into my new favorite sweater! now it should see some heavy rotation in the wardrobe.

    It looks great! I found a norwegian sweater at the Goodwill bins the other day that had those cool silver hook & eye claspy things. I thought of you, of course! (And my grandma, who was from Norway and knitted a couple of norwegian sweaters).
