DIY navajo sweater jacket

Last weekend I was cleaning out my closet and found this army jacket that I had bought at the Salvation Army a year ago. I was on the fence about keeping it since I hadn't worn it in a while and am trying to make room for new stuff! Something about it made it hard to get rid of, in the back of my mind I knew that I would want it if I got rid of it. We all have those moments when you go on a cleaning spree and then think to yourself, damn I wish I had that piece still. So I slung it over my desk chair and decided that I would just figure it out later. Yesterday the idea came to me when I saw this beautiful navajo sweater jacket at Anthro that I wanted with my whole heart the minute that I pulled it from the shipment box. I clung to it as if it were my childhood blanket! The price though is not so heart warming {especially with preschool starting and holiday budgeting beginning} But then I remembered that little diamond in the ruff that still needed a home. I ran out to the Goodwill and found a navajo print sweater and grabbed my scissors. A new baby was born. . .
