I've never made a quilt in my life, but I'm beyond infatuated with the quilted trend floating into fashion pieces these days (and if Rachel Zoe says quilting is cool, then who am I to argue?) For those of us who can't afford a Chanel bag, we have to create our own alternative, no? Up-cycling a sweater with dimensional quilting is the perfect way transform a piece in time for the arrival of fall. Sign me up for the quilting circle.
WHAT YOU NEED:
--Plain tee, blouse or sweater
--1 yard knit fabric (knit won't unravel when cut)
--Sizzix cutting machine using 2 inch circle cutter (much easier than cutting 60 circles by hand!)
--Thread to match circle fabric
Happy Labor Day!
