Sodenote: this little girl is SUCH a ham in front of the camera these days! I love it!
So this sweater is from Old Navy. I got a Large Tall - I wanted it to be long and oversized for maximum coziness. This is what it looked like before:
This is literally how it came - with one arm about 4 inches longer than the other. WTFON?!
After trying to wear it a few times (lol yeah, I wore it a few times), into the upcycle pile it went. It's got sparkly threads running through it - I couldn't throw it out! C'mon!
So to the chop shop that is my dining room table it went. I cut all the seams, and then cut raglan sleeves (of identical size.... ahem). I didn't take any length off, and luckily it hits her right above her knees! Win!
Then, even though the sparkly bits were cute, it still needed something. It was just a little too plain. Wearable and darling, but just plain.
Enter: Santa mittens! I used super soft red wool felt, and black pompom trim, and just freehanded the mitten shape:
I didn't even sew them on - I used fabric glue. So fast and so easy!
Emmy loves it.
