You know that ghastly sweater on your consignment or resale shop’s clearance rack? Those $1 sweaters on the thrift shop’s racks?
Turn them into something wonderful. This scarf made from reclaimed sweater sleeves got me started. Once I got started I couldn’t stop.
- DuH may be getting this for Christmas from me.
- Trace the nephews’/ nieces’ hands for these mittens: a holiday tradition in the making.
- These 10-second ornaments/ gift ties don’t even need an icky sweater. Try those icky wool plaid pants that were going into the rag bag.
- Lots of these ideas involve felted sweaters. Here’s how to accomplish that.
What a terrific project if you’re going to Grandma’s over the Thanksgiving weekend. Who knows, maybe if you got Mom and Aunt Ruth started on some of these ideas, you’d find something under the Christmas tree you really WANT, instead of another ghastly sweater.
