Welcome back to Hipster Week – the week where we celebrate all things hipster.
Now that the Christmas sweater season is officially upon us why not relish the irony of loving something so charmingly unattractive.
You will need:
3 Large sized Paper Clips
Template (at the end of this post)
8″ x 4″ white felt scrap
4″x 4″ – reddish color felt for dotted sweater Poppy
1″ x 2″ – green felt scrap Cilantro for tree
2″ x 2″ Darker green felt Fresh Cut Grass for holly leaves
8-10 very small jingle bells
Bend the paper clips into small hangers as shown and set aside.
Cut 4 sweater pieces from white felt and 2 from a pale red coral color like Poppy. Cut 1 tree from light green like cilantro and 2 holly leaves from dark green felt like Fresh Cut Grass
For jingley tree sweater attach bells with green thread place onto one of the white sweater pieces with a running stitch.
Place second white sweater pieces behind the first and overcast stitch around the outside, stop and slip the hanger inside before closing around the top.
It’s helpful to run thread around the “hanger” to prevent any chance of it slipping down.
For Christmas Corsage sweater stitch holly leaves onto one white felt sweater piece add iced berry beads in a cluster of three.
Stitch closed as above.
For Christmas Confetti Sweater stitch Moss, Gold Rush and Classic Red sequins down with matching thread. You could also use Beacon felt glue for this.
Finish as you did the other two
