Made from Recycled Sweater


My bff gifted me with a sweater from when her daughter was younger. I made me a hat, fingerless gloves, and a ITH Purse( design by Suedewsbury).

This was a fun project!!! So much to do and so little time...FIESTA

I would also love to see these better. This looks nice the hat then I believe fingerless gloves then the purse hidden under the gloves. I love soft sweaters, but when you get tired of them or whatever this is a great way to keep using.

Thanks .... I love the idea to slouch or tighten the gloves. the purse shows now too. So now I gotta say these are great and a great recycle. Love your finger nails I will need to put gloves on hide mine lol if I show a picture using hands.

I want to see them better and how! It is so excellent to recycle. I have held onto a couple things that I think would be wonderful recycled pieces. I am also impressed that this type knit can be made into an ITH purse. Thanks for sharing!
