21 Projects Using Recycled Sweaters

By craftyamy |

sweater pillows

I love sweaters (fall weather loves them too), and I definitely had a favorite one in high school.  It got so many holes (I kept stitching them) so I named it “Frankensweater.”  It was time to let it go, but I couldn’t.  At the time I never thought of making Frank into something else so that I could keep it around.  I wish I would have known about projects like these recycled floral sweater pillows at the time.  Just so you don’t end up getting rid of your favorite sweater, I am sending 20 projects your way (I threw in a fun sweater refashion just because).  View more ideas after the jump.
