Today's upcycling challenge is sweaters. 

Here are some ideas for re-using sweaters

Have you ever upcycled a sweater? What other ideas have you seen for re-using sweaters? How would you repurpose a sweater?

I have turned wool sweaters into diaper covers and longies for my kiddos in cloth diapers. Great for overnights!

I LOVE this idea - I'm totally going to do it, I just wore one of my old sweaters that I LOVED and I hated how it looked! Now I get to keep the sweater and get use out of it!

I wear mine until they're falling apart.  Nothing left to upcycle.  =)
