These adorable owl backpacks, made by my sister, were gifts to my little ladies for Christmas. My very talented baby sis made the pattern and all. I have been trying to get her to share the pattern, but she "claims" that she cannot find it.
My very talented mama makes beautiful hobo bags and backpacks from the sweaters (again using her own pattern).
My ladies quite often run to me with a new drawing that would make a cute softie. I simply cut the drawing apart to create a pattern to look just like the drawing.
Here, I simply cut the end of a sweater sleeve off to make a coffee cozy, then I like to embellish it a bit with a felty.
These are just a few ideas that we can do to use up old sweaters. My next project is a patchwork blanket using only sweaters!
