This sweater was decorated by me in the eighth grade with some “yo-yos”. I invested so much of my time into sewing the rosettes and painstakingly tacking them down with a needle and thread.
Primarily, I used quarter flats from the quilting department and some leftover material from vintage dresses I’ve altered. I stitched the rosettes with “yoyo” templates from the craft store. Goodness, I cannot stand the word “craft”. Pop-pom snowmen from elementary school holiday parties immediately come to mind. (shudder)

These photos are pretty old. The outfit was successful, except the colors are a bit off in the photos. BUT! I’m a problem solver from way back, so I whipped out my quick thinking skills, and edited these photos in a jiffy. Actually, I just clicked the black and white button in iPhoto, but it doesn’t sound as exciting like that!

In reality, this sweater is a girl-scout-green sort of color.
