Anthro inspired tutorial

I'm back if you can't tell I was lost for a moment but I found my self. :) Here is another tutorial I've been dying to share with you I hope you like this one, Because it's anthro inspired. I love to see what I can make on a bargin and I'm really enjoying this one...

grab an old sweater and lets get sewing













Then you want to flip right side out, and turn each strip into flower like shapes and sew right onto the "ear muff" part. Viola you made an easy cheap cute ready for the cold anthro inspired ear muffs.

  2. This is beautiful!! I just finished sewing some pillows tonight for a lady at church! :)

    Ok, now that you signed up at Inbox Dollars, you should look around the offers area and see if you see anything from Vistaprint. You can also wait until they send you an email (which everytime you read the emails you earn about 2 cents just for clicking that you read it). Then you click through to Vistaprint through Inbox Dollars, place your order, and it should say how much it will credit you. The current offer that was in my account was for $5 on any order. So when my order came out to be $5.67, I really only paid the 67 cents since they credited me the $5. Hope this helps!

  4. Glad you signed up! I love it. Once you hit $30 I think they pay you. I am at $17. You should have gotten the $5 credit just for signing up, but another $5 if you find the Vistaprint offer. They come out often though, so if its not there now, I bet it will come around again soon. :)

  24. This is so cute...and such a better deal than Anthro's version! I love making things at home rather than buying it. This will be great for keeping those little ears warm. Thanks for sharing!

  28. would this work with an old shirt sleeve? Might have to put elastic or something in it...hmmm...the wheels are turning in my head.

  30. Oh my goodness! This is so great, I'd never have thought to make it this way. I think I've been trying to crochet one for a while. So creative! Your models are so sassy & cute :) :)

  33. I have a similar scarf and it goes around your neck with the flower to the side...a friend knitted it for me and I love it....so share your daughters and try it on yourself!!

  34. This is really adorable and a great use for an old sweater. That particular sweater is really nice for this purpose. I would consider making one for myself, but it might require an extra long sleeve. Did you use an adult sweater for this?

    I am one of your newest followers. I love this idea. Since this is a sweater that's no longer worn and maybe going to donations, maybe you could not cut off as much sleeve and leave some for a facing. Stitch that edging back to form the facing around the armhole, and you have a sweater vest, and with the headband, it's ready for gift giving.

  36. That is the most adorable thing I have ever seen.Oh and the headband is cut too!!lol
