Crafty Tuesday: Woolly hat recycle


Everybody who reads this blog knows that I am a sewing newbie and pretty much suck at it. Mainly because I lack patience and if I start a project I don’t want to spend hours measuring, adjusting, ironing, cutting, pinning and what not before I can sit down and actually SEW.

That reminds me, did you know you can enroll in a free quilting class over at Craftsy called The craftsy block of the month? I did enroll, just for the heck of it, we will see what happens.

Anyway, two days ago I found this great idea and tutorial (shows how much of a newbie I am, I NEEDED that tutorial) to create a woolly hat out of an old sweater at Make it and love it. So I rummaged in the “for the thrift store” basket and found this old but still nice baby sweater and went down to work. It turned out a bit wonky but cutting and sewing that knitted thick material is rather tricky, I found out. The little “Tiger” label was already on the sweater so I had no embellishment work to do either. Convenient, cute and cheap!


Have you done anything crafty lately? Let me know, I am always looking for inspiration.

  1. I love crafts but I’m not good at most things. Sadly. I had a look at Craftsy, that look really neat. Thanks for sharing it. I have to explore it.


    • You can always start with something simple, Caroline. I never do too complicated things because I like quick results and not too much fiddling.


    • Thanks, Heather. When I posted this you didn’t have your post up and I wasn’t sure you’d do one so I didn’t like this to your Needlework Tuesday. But I’ve got something for next week again.
