Sweater up-cycle

Now that it's fall, you have probably broken out your hoodies and sweaters for the chilly weather. But, what do you do with that outdated sweater that's been sitting in your closet for the past few years collecting dust? Well, I will show you a great up-cycle!

I have an amazing friend named Leah. I walk miles with her every morning. She's my exercise buddy. She is so talented and creates the coolest pumpkins! We hung out today and she whipped this up! So cute and easy!

You will need:

A sweater
Scissors or a rotary cutter
Cutting Mat
DMC floss (aka:embroidery thread)
A stick
Hot glue gun

Go through that closet of yours and find a sweater that you don't want anymore. You could pick any color you want. White, tan, orange, brown, green... the possibilities are endless.

Grab your cutting mat and spread your sweater out. Measure 6" from the cuff of the sleeve and cut. Turn sleeve inside out.

Gather bottom of sleeve with DMC floss. Tie off. Sew a running stitch along the top of sleeve.

Turn sleeve right side out. Stuff with fiberfill.

Pull running stitch to close sweater. Secure stitch

Hot glue a branch to the top of your pumpkin. And you're done! Cheap and easy! This is something you could decorate with all season long. Love it!

Don't you just love friends! ❤️ Thanks for sharing Leah!
