I Love Cows Wall Hanging

 My sister and I just returned from a mini vacation
in Florida.  It was too cold to spend much time on the beach,
so we did the next best thing.
Thrift shopping!
Look what I came home with.

When I saw this farm life sweater by
Eagle's Eye
I had to have it.
 I knew could make something out of it
I just wasn't sure what.

Back view.
I started by cutting out one of the scenes.
I had just bought a square wire wreath frame
and was looking forward to trying it out.
I backed it with a little batting
then glued it all onto some fiber board.
Decided to cover the square wreath frame with
the black and white check sleeves.
I went a head and removed the large red heart
because I new I would be cutting right
down the middle of the sleeve.
I wrapped and glued the strips around
the frame, using both of the sleeves.
Used my glue gun and glued it all together.
Reattached the hearts that I had removed
from the sleeves.  Added two yellow flowers
made from another cotton sweater.
You can find this country life
wall hanging on my etsy site.
Please visit me and see what other
fun things I have for you.
