Reusing perfectly good old sweaters!
BLANKET OVERSIZED BAG
Black White and Grey stripe patterned Recycled Wool by Woolinmitts, $25.00
Neck warmer from a recycled sweater
Want! floor pouf pillows from old sweaters... So fun for kids to sit on! Could be fun to make so my high school art kids could sit on the floor for lectures and critiques.
yellow sweater turns into a bag (with pockets!)
Not the pattern I would pick but a good idea for outdoors... pretty straight forward, sleeves from an old sweater, cut off, fold over and put elastic in the fold... would keep little legs warm anyway.
Recycle your old shoes into boots!! this is actually really easy. I have tons of flats that I don't wear much anymore because of scuffed toes, and I can't bring myself to throw out cozy sweaters even if they're stretched, stained, etc. A match made in Heaven.
