Transformed Treasures

The Salvation Army fund raiser - vouchers were given to participants to buy from the Salvation Army stores and transform what they bought to raise funds at an auction to sell these treasures.
I bought an old wool sweater that had gone through the wash..not completely shrunk.  I washed it again and found a few holes.  I was going to line it with a cotton T shirt and make a jacket but, because of the small holes, decided against it.  The following photos of my transformation of the sweater.
I felted this sweater by washing twice and drying in a hot dryer.

In work...making the necklace..punching circles

Finished three pieces, neck warmer that I finished with a crochet edge, a necklace and a brooch.
