Upcycle!!! My absolute favorite thing to!!!
reuse (discarded objects or material) in such a way as to create a product of higher quality or value than the original.
“the opportunity to upcycle trash, or turn it into new products, was vast”
(Google’s English Dictionary by Oxford Languages)
Might be a bit too early for a Beanie here in Florida but I had to make it!
By using a beanie I already had as the pattern and this thrifted sweater, in a matter of minutes this cute and simple beanie was created.
I simply laid out my thrifted sweater. Placed my beanie on top along the edge of the sweater keeping the ribbed edge and cut around it adding about 1/4 inch for the seam. Then sewed around the raw edges with my sewing machine then you can either zig zag the edges or serge your edges.
I then hand sewed the Pom Pom to the top. Done!!
Here is the link for the “faux fur Pom Pom” I bought on Amazon:
Let me know if you make one and share your beanie with me. I would love to see them!!
Until next time……..
