Teal Beret with Embroidered Flower

This beret began as a Talbot's sweater. I was really undecided on whether I should cut it up as originally intended or try to sell it on Ebay. Its cute enough, used to be my size (lol!) and was made of 97% wool and 3% cashmere. Such a pretty sweater. Awww, what the hell, I cut it. I couldn't be happier with the results! One adult sized beret and one toddler size, soft and colorful. And if I play it right, I could end up with leg warmers or boot socks too!

This one is the teen/adult size. Love how flexible the stretchy band is :)

I freestyle embroidered the flower on using a back stitch. And layered the buttons for contrast. The bottom button is brass colored and came from a denim dress. This teal button was perfect! I don't remember what it came from but it was all alone, no matchies.

This beret is so soft and luxurious. I can imagine that I would never wear it, just hold it and pet it all day.
