I had an old sweater I no longer wanted. As I was putting it into the Goodwill bag I realized I could transform this sweater into something special for family and friends.
After cutting my sweater it looked like this…
And here is what I was able to create with my sweater pieces…
- I made a vest and matching hat for my granddaughter. I can’t wait for her to try them on.
- I am finishing a pair of mittens I plan to line with fleece for the cold winters in the midwest.
Now my only problem is figuring out what to do with the rest of the sweater. I think I will make a small pair of mittens for my granddaughter but am not sure what to do with the remaining material. Any ideas? I would appreciate them!

Today my daughter emailed a picture of our granddaughter in her new sweater and hat. She makes everything she wears look adorable. Evidently she did not want to wear the hat but mommy persevered and now I have a new picture to treasure.
