Upcycled Thursday: Mellow Yellow

You guys! I did it! A successful Upcycled Thursday post after last weeks disaster. And this it the sweater I was trying to take pictures of. I started with a basic cardigan. Then I chopped up and old, poor fitting {but had a cute print} t-shirt, and stitched it to the bottom of the cardigan. I also made a flower out of another old t-shirt and attached it. The whole thing took about 30 minutes. Easy breezy. 

By the way, I've had two more brown avocados since last weeks mishap. What am I doing wrong? What is the green avocado secret?

I love the sweater! You have the best ideas. One day I'll learn to wear, then make the flowers. Avocados... dark color, firm wither a little give. That's all I know. Good luck!
