Sweaters Reinvented

Lately I’ve been back in the mode of repurposing garments into new cushion covers or new sweaters. These are a couple of my finished pieces but there is a pile of ripped apart clothes that I’ve started but haven’t gotten to yet. Usually I start cutting and don’t get a before shot of the sweater but these are the remnants left.

(In my rush to make this sweater quickly one night I didn’t have enough buttons so that’s why it looks different in the photo below).

These were the cable knit sweater pillows that I posted last year:

Before & After

There’s good material out there in your closet or secondhand that can be made into something new plus there’s not a lot to lose.
