Honey I shrunk your jumper…

I have a stash of my husband’s jumpers under the spare bed, documenting laundry shame over the past 6 years… Even though every washing machine I’ve used has a specific ‘wool’ setting, something comes over me and I am rendered incapable of protecting natural fibres from hot water and inevitable shrinkage…

No matter, all the more for me! A shrunken jumper takes on a felted feel and becomes more snuggly as a result. Add some applique shapes (this time I’ve chosen autumn leaves) and a touch of embroidery and hurrah, old jumper, new life! At least I’m not chilly…
