Do you have a few old sweaters that have a hole or two too many to keep in rotation? I know I sure do! (And the kids too!)

You can give that knit garment new life but sewing your old sweater into something new.

There are so many great crafts you can make with sweater material. Try making a pair of baby pants in a cozy recycled knit. Smaller-weave cotton knits make fabulous toys, while chunky sweater knits can be made into fashion items like scarves, blankets, or even home decor pillows.

Once you get comfortable sewing up your knits, you will find tons of ways to re-use them.
