Sweater Salvage

I have had this black wool sweater for close to 15 years and it is a favorite!  I wear it nearly daily and it was starting to get worn and had developed a few holes.  I looked in vain for a sweater of the same size and similar fit, but wasn't able to find one.  Today, I decided to repair the holes in hopes of getting a few more years use out it!  

Every where that there was a hole, I needle felted a leaf over that spot.  

I love the way it turned out and hope that it will hold up to daily wear!  So glad I was able to salvage it and turn it into something a bit unique!
