They take up space in your closets and drawers. Some of them have issues — they pill, they pull, they snag, they shrink. Some are beautiful — and some are not. But we all have them. Sweaters come with the season, and appear on ski slopes, at holiday parties (and there are parties to celebrate the ugliest of sweaters!), on sidewalks and nature trails.
But what do we do with the sweaters we no longer want? It seems a shame that such a cozy piece of clothing should be tossed into the “giveaway” bin. And admit it, you still kind of like that reindeer sweater. So we rounded up some of the best ideas to reuse old sweaters.
Leggings for little ones. This easy tutorial shows you how to make toddler leggings so cute you’ll want to cut up your new sweaters to make more.
Leggings for bigger ones. OK, OK. They aren’t tights like the toddler version. But these boot leggings are still cute. And the bonus is that the author shows you how to make a pillow out of the remainder of the sweater.
