Upcycled Sweater Turns into Autumn Art

This faded orange cable knit sweater was headed for the rag bag when Nici rescued it from a yard sale, along with an embroidery hoop.  She used both castoffs to make some delightful fall decor over at Posed Perfection.

First, Nici created a cardboard template the size of her embroidery hoop.  She covered it with quilt batting for some extra fluff, and topped that with a circle cut from the cable knit sweater.  It took some muscle, but Nici got the outside hoop over everthing and tied off the top with a jute “stem.”  Adorable!
