Damian needed a sweater, and since I had a couple of moth-eaten wool sweaters, let the sewing begin! I offset the button placket to the right because I thought it would look interesting, used mismatched buttons from my mom's button jar, and lined it with an old t-shirt so it wouldn't be itchy. Since I've never seen a cute possum, I decided to be cheeky and make one up! I embroidered around some scraps of felt, securing my felt possum to a scrap of cotton, then used a fancy stitch on my machine to create the border and secure it to the sweater.

www.prudentbaby.com is running an awesome contest to win a new sewing machine that I've been drooling over for months. Peace, love, and recycle!
