10 Ways to Upcycle Sweaters

Don’t forget your closets and drawers when searching for scraps to use for sewing projects. Old sweaters hold a lot of potential when it comes to winter sewing. Repurposing an old sweater into something more useful is the ultimate upcycle sewing project. No fabric wasted is our motto! If taking up knitting isn’t in your future, making use of the lovely knitted fabric from a sweater is a great way to add knitted accessories to your wardrobe without knitting needles. If you don’t have old sweaters lingering in your closet, a quick trip to your local thrift store might be in order.
