Upcycled Sweater: 4 Items from 1 Sweater!
- My Own Project
- My Own Design
Made by: Erin, Pittsburgh, PA
A favorite sweater tore at the neckline. I decided to make lemonade out of lemons, and came up with 4 projects: a hat, armwarmers, a mp3 player cosy, and elbow patches for a "professor-style" cardigan. With the scraps, you can make a pincushion! I used the trusty split stitch to sew up my hat, to ensure durability. You can read my instructions for making all of these at my blog, if you're so inclined: http://blog.paperrosedesigns.com/?tag=sweater
