Another sweater transformation

Here’s a wool sweater from the thrift store that someone washed and shrunk. But it was perfect for making a hat and mittens. I used the shirt for a liner for the hat.


Check out this tutorial for making the hat and this one for making the mittens.

Here’s the finished set. I did go back and make the brim smaller. I included a couple pictures of me wearing the hat. It’s hard to take pictures of yourself. Maybe when Cooper and Steve come home from getting firewood, I’ll ask them to take some pictures.

    Bether. This is such a great idea!!! You are one of the most amazing women I know. So creative, so inspiring, so beautiful, so ‘go-gettum’. I feel the same way about buying clothes… I.d rather spend my $ traveling. Missed you at the music. Are you going IP to Anthony for the music? Love you

    • Hey, Carol! Thanks for all the encouragement!!! After reading that I think I could do anything! As far as Anthony goes, I might be able to go up. Steve had to go out of town for work so I’m in charge of Coop. If he’s got some solid plans for that night, I’m all for it! Hugs!
