It is made from yarn that I recycled from a (suuuuuper ugly) thriftstore sweater and then dyed with acid dyes. It is really great to finally have this finished! When I remember to bring my tripod back from my studio I will make sure to take a picture of me wearing it. It was knit in one piece, and has simple shaping for the waist and hips. I have dreams of someday having a closet full of handmade sweaters. :)
I also picked up a few nice things these last few weeks at the thrift store. First off, I spotted this chair at the goodwill for $10 and my heart skipped a beat or two -- here are my cats posing on it for you:
I am obsessed with mid-century furniture right now, and this chair calmed that obsession, at least for a little while. It has a couple of small/easily fixable little scratches, and totally needs to be reupholstered, see:
Midcentury furniture + 90's floral upholstery = awful.
I'm thinking of covering it in a simple grey or muted green fabric, but maybe I'll search through my stash and see if there is anything else that would work. I'm thinking that just about any other fabric would be a huge improvement!
I also picked up this little purse thinking it might be a cute camera bag, but my camera sits a little funny in it, so I think I'll put it up in my etsy shop sometime this week. It is sooo cute that I am really tempted to keep it though.
That's all for now. Hope you are all having a great weekend!
