Sweater Surgery:
How to Make New Things from Old Sweaters

By yours truly,

Stefanie Girard

"Contemporary crafters are thriving on personalizing, modifying, and altering fashion as not only hobbies but as a lifestyle.

Why repurpose your sweaters? Because you can't buy sweater fabric by the yard. Sweaters get damaged or go out of style but we still love the prints, colors, and textures. You don't have time to knit it from scratch. It's ecologically correct. And most of all--it's fun!

Sweater Surgery shows you how to upcycle all your slightly worn, slightly damaged, or plain old out-of-style sweaters into fabulous new items for your wardrobe and your home. Readers learn how to choose, cut, restitch, felt, and embellish old sweater fabric, transforming it into beautiful handbags, mittens, scarves, hats, hoodies, skirts, jewelry, soft toys, pillows, and more!

Complete instructions for 27 projects, plus a huge gallery of exciting ideas for further inspiration."

Good luck all ya'll lovers of the scissors! ♥✂

This is great! I love to upcycle and reuse the sweaters I find at the thrift store. Between totes and "cozies" for my water bottles, I can say the ideas I find here are wonderful, and show me the other direction I can go with my projects.

I already have a copy and love it. Darn! I paid full price. Just kidding. It was worth every penny and has paid for itself many times over.
