Sew wool hats from old sweaters
I have been trying to learn more about knitting recently and have been going to a local knit cafè group. One of the members has been collecting knit and crocheted hats and scarves for a local organization that helps homeless people in the area. I figured that I would be able to help out more by sewing some hats rather than making them with yarn. (This novice knitter and crocheter is pretty dang slow!) I know we've all seen and/or sewn hats from old sweaters before and there are gazillions of them all over Pinterest, so this is really nothing new to most of us. But isn't it great when you can take just three abandoned sweaters (I didn't end up using the red one) and in a few hours turn them into...
...six warm winter hats and caps that are all unique and, more importantly, will keep heads warm on those who need them most?
If you're interested in seeing the different techniques I used, check out this post on my blog, Cucicucicoo. I know I've been pretty absent here lately, but I have a bunch more wintery refashions coming up!
