First I just removed the sleeves. I just didn't like them!
Remember that blue dress I refashioned and removed the sleeves? Let me refresh your memory... click here for the post
I used the leftover sleeves and added them to the top. I even removed some of the sides of the top but it didn't do much. After seeing the photos, need to take it in even more. I promise you, the shirt grows after wearing it! Here is my new top!
But wait.... there is more! What about those sleeves? OH yeah this is another 2 for 1 sort of blog post!!
Fall is here and winter is coming. That means my poor older cat who has a heart condition gets cold. As a result, he follows you like a puppy and has to be in your lap all the time because he is cold. It sounds cute but really having a cat in the lap won't work. But he is cold. I decided to convert the sleeve into a sweater. The wrist will be the head and the arm hole will be the bottom of the sweater. I cut some holes big enough for him to move (learned this with the first one which is sort of mangled from scissors). He absolutely loves it!!! I mean he was walking around so happy that I could not get a photo out of him.
I promise you it is in now way tight on him- cats are poofy with lots of fur.
I got him to go and eat. Finally some sort of photo.
But my Sebastian will stay warmer this winter.
So 1 sweater = 2 sweaters!!! (and a happy cat)
