Sweater Refashion Three Ways

Sweater refashion three ways

It may be Spring and the end of March but it’s still cold and snowy here in Northeast Ohio. We just got a whole bunch of snow dumped on us last night. I see lots of bloggers talking spring and busting out their spring clothes but I’m still freezing. This project was perfect for the transition from from winter to warmer weather because I am still finding ways to layer and keep warm.

I did a big purge of my refashion pile. It was getting out of control and I was never going to get to everything anyway. I was looking for easy projects that I could make with minimal effort and this sweater caught my eye. I love the color but it was a little worn out for wearing anymore.


I recently watched this video that was created by Megan at Brassy Apple. She has done individual tutorials on her site but there was something about watching the video that really motivated me to cut up a sweater. I knew this turtle neck was the perfect option.

This was the easiest no sew project! I made four cuts. I started by cutting off the turtleneck, then each one of the sleeves, and finally the body of the sweater.

I folded the turtleneck in half and voila, it became a cute headband.

The sleeves became easy boot socks.

I folded the body in half and it became a short cowl.

Lucky for me the sweater did not fray to pieces or this would not have worked. It actually took me more time to get these photos taken than it did to create the project.

I may be linking up to one of these fabulous parties.
