Repurposed Sweaters

wow! This has been a productive day at the library. I was reading about designs that start from repurposed sweaters. The book was called Sweater Surgery. It is amazing how a plushie can be born or a cool book bag or a place to stash your favorite journal. I am planning on making some small creatures and a bag. My stash of navy sweaters is growing and sweaters with stripes. I also, want to find sweaters with green or a spring theme with some embroidery to make that extra fashion statement. Doing sweater surgery is very easy and looking for sweaters with the largest amount of remnant fabric for matching scarf or headbands. Hope this will inspire you to start designing and repurposing some of your own thrift store sweaters. Have Fun!! Creative Play is for everyone.

  1. I have a growing stash of wool sweaters to play with, too. It's almost as fun collecting neat sweaters as purchasing quilting fabrics. lol Haven't heard of this book, sounds interesting.
