One Sweater...Three Different Projects

Project #2

Last week, I told you about this sweater. A perfectly nice sweater, but who wants nice. Nice is a second grade word and I try to teach my third graders to use descriptive words other than nice.  Let's expand our vocabulary, shall we?  How about attractive, charming, lovely, or inviting?
And while the sweater was nice, it wasn't attractive, charming, lovely, or even inviting.

So I made a few Miner adjustments. Project #1 was a pair of mittens. They came out just how I imagined.  And they are oh so cozy. One could say they are inviting!

Next, I took the body of the sweater and made...a pillow. 

Just a little accent pillow, but really, truly it is charming and lovely.

Here is a quick tutorial...

And there you have it....a sweater pillow. What do you think?

It is a happy little head rest.

Stay tuned for the last project. Can you even imagine what is left of this once "nice" sweater?



  1. Ok, I've been following this, but seem to have lost your link/info for the 3rd project! LOL - I'm lost and I don't have a clue what you are going to do with the sleeves & neck.

    1. Thanks for following! I haven't posted the third project yet...stay tuned. OK?

  2. LOL, silly me! I just found your project this week on pinterest and thought I missed something! Apparently, I did! I wasn't paying attention to the dates, just the articles! Love your ideas! Thanks and I'll be waiting.

    1. No worries! The last one will come sometime this week.
