What just happened? Crazy fun!! Wish she would stand still for just a few seconds so we could look at the finished, ummm, whatever it is! Love, love, love the colors! Bus and house are also crazy fun! Going to watch it again, right now .

I have seen totes made of various home dec fabrics--they sell for $45-$65 in our area--they are a nice size to hold yarn for projects. I bet yours would be beautiful!

I have quite a collection of old sweaters--I get them at Goodwill for $1 or less...cut them up into all sorts of projects, but mostly I felt them for totes, mittens or hats.

It is hard to work through pain, but I sew a lot to get me through the pain...I have a bad left hip as well and some days are good, others, not so much!

I can tell you that it weighs a ton! She could have knit that on a machine, not had any seams and it would have flowed a little better because she could have used the same style and weight of yarn. Forgive me, but ICK!!! It makes for a fun video. Babs, felting yarn that is a natural fiber would make lovely bags. I made a felted jacket for a lady, and it turned out so pretty. I can tell you it was one warm coat. I never made one for myself because at the time I had hot flashes hit me at odd times. I couldn't even work on the jacket with out flashing.
Too hot!!!!! When I can, now that the flashes have cooled their jets, I'd like to make one for a winter coat. And only wear it on sub zero days. LOL Thanks for the video, but I cringed every time she took the scissors to the sweaters! (:o( LOL Hugs, Jan L.

Loved her whole bohemian style. Now if I just had a fraction of her energy.

Loved her whole bohemian style. Now if I just had a fraction of her energy. Looked at her etsy shop. She sure isn't doing it to make money. Super cheap.

I thought the same thing....but then realized those are the tutorials. Here are some of the finished items she has http://www.etsy.com/shop/katwise?section_id=5084804

Fun video, but at my age I would not be wearing anything like that. It would be great for a teeny-bopper though.

Wow, all those cardigans to make one coat - nice and bright but not my style, but obviously very popular.

Who has that many sweaters, and with all those colors?? I think it was cool. What an idea!

Babs, I'm with you on the hip pain. Prayers you can have a pain free day soon.
