RED EMBROIDERED SWEATERS: BEFORE & AFTER

Hi!
 
Vacations really catch you up! Had been wanting to post this since last week...
 My kids moved to a different school and so different school uniforms. Had to do something with the school sweaters. They are almost new and well fitting.

 Here is the sweater, to begin with I simply picked out the stitches holding the school logo, very neatly.

 This is my son's sweater with a potted Christmas tree. The decorations are sequins just stuck using fabric glue. The star on top and small ones on sleeves are embroidered.

 This is the first time, am embroidering on knitted garment. Believe me it's very easy, especially if you are using wool. Use very simple basic stitches.

 Here is my daughter's sweater. Logo out. Sketched a pine tree branch in pen, amd also snowflakes on the sleeves.

 Using pale green wool to sew in some pine leaves/needles. Did the branches and stem in Grey wool

 Here is this sweater complete with pines (which are silver and golden sequins glued in clusters) and snowflakes on sleeves.

This sweater is so appropriate for the season and time of festivity, that these have become Aarotrika and Adhrit's favorite sweaters. They wear them everyday to park..

Hope you enjoyed my little venture and will pull out your own stuffs and embelish them and upcycle them and restyle them..

WISH YOU ALL
MERRY CHRISTMAS
AND
HAPPY NEW YEAR
