Sweaters, recycled.

I came across a great post on Apartment Therapy a couple days ago about recycled sweaters (found here). I really loved some of the ideas and it prompted me to look into more lovely recycled d.i.y ideas. Here are a couple of my favorite:

(from Apartment Therapy)
Bright and frilly accent pillows (I'm majorly swooning over these!!)
Faux Taxidermy= Fully Awesome.

Red bird on repurposed wool sweater purse
From winter handbag, brilliant!

Pine Tree Advent Forest
Um, this is the cutest little pine forest I ever did see! (Instructions here.)

Tabletop Tree
Table top tree, precious.

poinsettia brooch
Felted Poinsettia Brooch....Tutorial: here.

The possibilities for re-purposing sweaters are endless...go ahead and google it. There are so many crafty people doing awesome recycled things! It really makes me wish I had more sweaters to get rid of :)

I hope everyone is having a fantastic Wednesday. Tomorrow I will be posting a sneak peek of lots of new vintage goodies headed to our online shop.
Ta ta 'til then!!

  1. I made the green sweater bag with the red bird on it in this blog. Would be nice if you mentioned where you found this picture. My etsy shop is

  2. I don't blame you, turnupgreen. First of all, it makes me crazy when people post other people's items and don't provide a link. RUDE.'s your BUSINESS, for heaven's sake. Come on...give us links! It's the right thing to do.
