Reducing waste through upcycling, repurposing, refashioning and reloving.

Refashion: Recyled sweater hats ...



This is a refashion project I've been sitting on for years! That means old sweaters taking up space, just waiting to be upcycled. I finally found the right inspiration and here they are. I was really inspired by One Pearl Button, but ultimately followed (most of) the instructions given for this hat.







I ignored the advice re. cotton-blend sweaters and surged the edges of the pieces once cut out. They did just fine. Instead of stitching in the top edges on the brown hat, I turned them out to create the flower - never lose an opportunity for a touch of whimsy! I also made a lining out of a soft cotton knit so that these babies are actually warm.
