On Pinterest and Etsy there have been cute little ideas of turning old sweaters into heart shaped hand warmers and things.
I was in possession of an old sweater. It had stretched out and looked strange and baggy. It was craft time!
I can use a sewing machine, but you might be fooled looking at these pictures. I’m going to blame the ribbed nature of the old sweater. Had this been attempted in felt or some other thick fabric that didn’t stretch to double plus in length things probably would have turned out wonderfully. A serger might have also saved my crafts. At least my husband will love the rice filled hand warmers, if he can remember to pop them in the microwave.
The lumpy looking prototype fingerless glove will never get a match made. Knitting gloves like that takes longer and costs more in nice yarn, but it is so worth it.
