Upcycle: Sweater Re-sew-lution ...


YEAH!  I love this idea and I know exactly which of my old sweaters is about to get the chop.  Thanks to Me Sew Crazy for hosting this fab sweater refashion - so many small, wonderful details.



Check out Tea Rose Home for more gorgeous upcycling ideas from Suchiko - like the old-cardigan-turns-scarf below:







Recycle: Downsize a sweater!


What can be both downsized and upcycled at the same time? An old sweater! I shouldn't pick favorites, but when it comes to refashions, I do think that sweaters win. 


I actually have three old stretched-out sweaters sitting in a box waiting for exactly this kind of repurposing! I also have a small human in my life who tends to wear the things I make too. Handy.



 Don't you wish you were as stylish as this little girl? Thanks to Homemade Ginger for the great tutorial!  (Headband tutorial is separate)
