I think upcycled is what we’re calling it these days. Take something you no longer use and change it into something else. I thought I’d give it a whirl.

I’d already cut one sleeve off of my no-longer-worn sweater before I thought to take a picture.

Sweater outfit

Zip zap and I’d made my sweater into a pair of leg warmers (from the sleeves), a skirt (from the waist section), and a scarf (from the top sleeves, because that’s where the purple stripe was) for Sage. I sent her mama this picture and asked if Sage might pose in it for a picture.


I got more than I asked for. Sage wore her new outfit to our annual Christmas time breakfast (usually at the Benson in Portland, this year at the local Allison resort).



What a bunch!

    So adorable ๐Ÿ™‚ You are so clever with new ideas :))
    I hardly ever buy anything new, used/recycle is GOOD!
    But I must say, I don’t think I would have ever discovered such a clever outcome with a sweater. I’m not quite that motivated.
    Ha ๐Ÿ™‚
