So I had this tiny baby sweater for 13 years! Talk about hoarding! Ha:-) Well, it's a mighty cute little sweater from the Gap. However, the arms always felt a little too snug to put them easily on little tiny babies. And now that I really need to keep my little ones as warm as possible (we're not in CA anymore!), I wanted to repurpose it somehow.
Then I thought maybe I'd make some hand warmers for my 4yr old, and made these. I just sewed up the raw edge and tacked down between the thumb and the pointer. Well well well, what do you know! They fit me perfectly, thank you;-)
Then I made the body part into a hat. I left the buttons as is and just sewed a dome-like shape. All done! A brand new slouchy hat!
And then I had this hoodie...what can I do? Hmmmmm....
Sewed up one end to close it up into a little pouch. Added a twizzle handle and cut up some applique out of other felted sweater scrap to make a cute tree~ Ta da!!! Oh so cute! Asher liked it, too;-)
