(Hi! I'm ridiculous.)
The first time I tried sewing with felted sweater fabric I was pretty pleased with myself. The felted sweater was the result of an accident. I know I'm not alone in discovering that a sweater accidently put through the washing machine can be cut & will not ravel, stretches in any direction but has excellent body, & generally presents a dizzying array of potential uses.
This particular sweater was felted because I dyed it. The water got too hot or I left the dye pot on the stove too long...
Picture now; me, lamenting the reduced dimensions of my (felted) sweater, newly dyed a nice shade of green. I heard the familiar click click of doggy toenails. My focus shifted momentarily beyond the sweater in my hands to the funny little dog in the background. In that moment, it dawned on me; the zipper on the front of my felted sweater would fit right up the front of the dog's chest, & the collar on the sweater could be left in tact. I'd just have to cut off the sleeves & take the body in drastically...& you can fill in the rest. More detail here would only lead to drowsiness. After the sweaters were completed I sensed a need for a special beaded zipper-pull. But that's another story for another day.
