Frosty Festivities Christmas & Winter

Winter Woollies Recycling

(This post is part of my Frosty Festivities Blog Event)

I saw this pin on Pinterest, and I had to try out the ideas to recycle some winter woollies! I popped to the local charity shop, and picked up this jumper-dress:

And so far I’ve turned some of it into a bracelet (by following this tutorial):
And this pair of mittens (by following this tutorial):
I love them both! And I’ve got lots of material left – I’m planning on a scarf and a cushion cover. All from a jumper for £2! I shall be looking out for more!
Be Inspired:
  • Use a pin on Pinterest to inspire you 
  • Alter something old that needs a re-vamp
  • Add some wool to a project
Don’t forget that a comment on this post, or on any of my posts from this weekend, will count as an entry into the Grand Giveaway {NOW CLOSED}– but only if you’ve registered your interest in winning that here!

Have you ever recycled old clothing into something new? See you soon for the Final Frosty Festivities post! x

  2. Oh, excellent – love that bracelet! :)I’ve done the ‘jeans into a bag’ thing, and used fabric from my kids’ outgrown clothes in various projects, including covers for handmade notebooks. I never throw anything out without casting a ‘crafty’ eye over it first! 😉

  3. The bracelet is way cool!I’ve used clothing for sewing projects, and when I find pure wool (i.e. feltable) sweaters at charity shops, I like to felt them and then sew the felt into potholders, placemats etc.
