One person's "ugly" is another person's "pretty". Remember Bill Cosby's sweaters on his television show? I thought some of them were hideous, but obviously someone else thought they were great.

I have seen some of the ugliest christmas sweaters in the whole world at thrift shops. And the funny thing is that are usually worn out. So someone obviously used them !!

"Just had a thought - get some "brick" fabric - make a square on the front - get a small soft santa doll - sew back end to middle of square - Santa got stuck in the chimney."

That is too funny!

Thanks for the ideas everyone! There is a Goodwill in my town. I never thought to check there.

Someone at the guild meeting tonight said that thrift stores were good places to find wool to felt. Hmmm... could be a profitable shopping trip.

They also call them "Tacky" sweaters on eBay, or at least the ones I bought were, lol


There is a new commercial on tv with a guy and a skating cat sweater that his wife calls hideous on Facebook, lol

All of Mr.Cosby's sweaters were gifts from fans.
