Sweet Cherries

This sweater used to be yellow. I do not like the color yellow. It may be just fine for other people, but yellow reminds me of baby clothes;) So, the obvious choice was to dye the sweater a different color. And that’s what I did:

I also added some embellishments in the form of bias binding and some heart buttons on the sleeves. The sleeves were too long for my sister’s arms, so I rolled them up and gave them “tabs”. I quite like how it turned out (if I do say so myself:))

  2. Delightful color! I have a few cream sweaters (100% cotton) that I inherited that I planned to dye, too. Thanks for the inspiration.
