Blogtoberfest Day 15: My Creative Space & The Mookah Challenge

I'm not going to be home to create anything today, but this is next on my list.... and currently sitting on my kitchen bench.

The lovely Mookah ladies have issued SuperPops with a challenge which must be completed by the end of Blogtoberfest. We're halfway there already, and I haven't come up with a definitive idea of what I'm going to do.

I need to take this extremely well felted jumper.......

- from Mookah

"it was a mens XL 100% wool cream cable knit jumper - you know the sort I mean. Anyway, we weren't thinking and put it in with a red jumper, so you guessed it, it's now a baby pink coloured jumper. Worse than that though, it shrunk just a little more than desired, and would probably now fit a 4 year old child."

.....and transform it into something wonderful.

Wish me luck!

Creativity abounds at the home of My Creative Space


PS - If you're stuck for Blogtoberfest ideas, just check out the list on Amy's sidebar, and today you can also head on over to Chunky Chooky for help. Cath has a post chock full of ideas for everyone!

Exreme felting!! You could do anything with that and the colour is so feminine too. Just letting you know I have posted my giveaway today too. It ends 22 October I think. Cherrie

Wow - that jumper really did shrink! Good luck with the challenge. It looks like a lovely cuddly medium to be playing with - a softie would be cute - maybe a fat birdie?!

It has potential in it's next life that's for sure :P...I hope you accomplish your challenges, lots going on these days!

Kate said...

Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Sarah said...

I'll be really interested to see what you come up with! (Another superhero, maybe?)

Also, I've just finished my Superpos entry. Please take a look!

Alison said...

I am going to have to hit the charity shops for some woolly jumpers I think! I just want to have a go at it, I feel inspired.

M* (Melanie) said...

Yes, I can't see what you come up with either. You are also very inventive. It will no doubt be fantastic

Swirlyarts said...

I have a pile of jumpers that look like that too - I need to make something with them before the weekend with them or miss a deadline. Better get crafting!

Mookah said...

Ahhh...see I knew others would see it with potential! That's why it was best to pass it on to someone with SuperPops vision.

Can't wait to see your creative conclusion, and SuperPops rise to the challenge!
