Handmade by Non

I am so happy to welcome my best friend to her regular guest spot – Handmade by Non – in which Non shares with us all things crafty and beautiful from her handmade, stylish world…over to you, Non! XxX

“Hi my name is Rhiannon, Non for short… today I’ll share with you a recent up-cycled jumper, using some leather scraps left over from a recent project”

Pre-sewing

Pre sewing. This jumper was a bit boxy and shapeless to start with.

Cutting to fit

Use correct needle

I ensured I used a blunt ended needle and thick thread to sew the jumper together. I used a finer, sharp needle and thread suitable for leather, to sew on the patches.

Embellishments

I added buttons and beads to the pocket for extra embellishment.
