Hello Refashion Co-op. I hope you are somewhere warm and cozy and you can sew at your leisure. HAHA! I know, you're busy and that is just a nice daydream. Here is a quick project for you when you have time to sew. Winter gear to keep you warm, made from a sweater. This was a nice sweater but it had some sparkle to it that I wasn't crazy about. It was great for this project I saw on Facebook.
You are going to cut this sweater up to make all the pieces you need. First, cut the cowl neck off the sweater. Keep the binding or seam attached to the neck. It will keep it from unraveling. This is the scarf. If you need to, turn the edge under and stitch it down.
Cut the arms off, they will be leg warmers. The wrist is the cute part that will peek out of your boots.
Use your hands as a guide to cut out two big hands from the sides for mittens. The center should be bid enough to cut out a hat shape. Put the right sides together and stitch the raw edges.
Here are all my finished items. They were a gift.
