This past weekend I did a little thrifting and bought a sweater for around $3. I had a few ideas up my sleeve as to what I could do with it, and so I got to work!
First of all, I made a pair of sweater boot socks. I have been eyeing some I saw at TJ Maxx for a couple weeks, but they were $15. I didn't really want to spend that much, so I made my own version instead.
I also made a pillow out of the body of the sweater:
It was so easy to make both of these projects!
For the boot socks, all I did was cut the arms off of the sweater. Then I sewed the end that I cut and Viola! Put them on. Seriously, SUPER EASY.
For the pillow, I just measured my insert, added two inches to all sides and cut it out from the body of the sweater. Then sewed the sides together and VIOLA!
Now go and repurpose your old sweaters, or buy some really cheap ones from the thrift store!
