This was one of my favorite sweaters. I had it for years but it started to unravel and couldn't be fixed. The yarn is too pretty to throw away so I used one of the sleeves to make this sweater vase just in time for Valentine's Day. #ValentinesDay

    ohh yeah.. didnt think of them... great ideal ... i would have just sprayed them with a heavy starch and let them dry ... you would always have a vase that way... They are still cute and romantic... You did a great job on them ...(did you sew the bottom

    Melody M I used tiny adhesive glue dots to hold up the sleeve. Thanks!

    So pretty and clever,,, am going to use this idea. Have also used old sleeves cut off to wrap items I did not want to get scratched for a craft sale. They were not pretty ones,, just sweat shirts or whatever,, so I really love this idea.
