A patched together lifestyle of thrift and charm...

Upcycled From Old Sweaters...

I'm loving upcycled goods from old sweaters.
  Pinterest is full of fun ideas - just take a peek at this search.
 I especially like projects from white sweaters.
 Today - I took a 'too big' sweater and made a Christmas stocking.
 The sleeve made a nice cuff...
I was tickled with how the hanging loop turned out.
  It just a few ribs from the sweater that I folded over
 and hand stitched together down one side. 
You can't see the stitching -  knit fabric is very forgiving.
Total Cost? - .75 (from the Goodwill bins!)
Are there any sweater projects on your horizon?

Your stocking looks beautiful Joyce! Maybe you can make one of those sweater covered cone trees with any leftovers you have of the sweater. Our Goodwill has been closed for awhile for remodeling. I am eagerly awaiting their reopening!

Great idea! I bet you had fun hunting down the "right" sweaters!
