I'm almost done with my first project for etsy! A "chain mail" sweater. I made it to Jack's size since I had sweaters lying around to reference and he would be available to model it. I used a ultra bulky yarn so that the loops would really show up and look like mail. The coat of arms is felt, hand appliqued and outlined in black piping to really make it pop.

At first I thought it would only take two or three days to make, and maybe it will after I've made it a few times and the boys are a little more independent. Right now the only time I have to work on it is in the evenings after they're both asleep. Hopefully I can some up with a few other things to make, that are a little bit quicker, to fill up the shop between sweaters.
