Over on flickr I have been making mosaics of all my favorite crafty pics that inspire me to try some new techniques or projects. You can see the set here. The sweatshirt above left, is my favorite cozy jacket (good for wearing around the house i winter, maybe out on some errands with a t and jeans) but it was getting a little ragged...and stained. So Inspired by the sweatshirt on the right, I cut up some trendy apple/pear material and appliqued over all spots, logos, and worn areas...even added some ribbon to the sleeves.

Here are some other projects you've see and the originals that inspired them (click on the picture to get links to the originals

I need to try appliques. I spill food on myself all the time. I always try to get stuff out in the laundry but sometimes it just won't come out. Cute idea to save those clothes!
