I made this wind-inspired bolero using Cal Patch's design. I used an old turtleneck I bought from a thrift store and restyled it into the ruffly cardigan. For the "wind in the trees" motif, I recycled another t-shirt and cut it into leaf and branch shapes. All the embroidery is done by hand using inspiration and techniques I found in The Alabama Stitch Book which promotes slow design and sustainability.
