Resweater giveaway - hat or sweater!



I am so sorry i've been neglecting my blog, (and will be until after my show on Saturday) so I decided to have a giveaway in the meantime! I will be giving away any 1 sweater from my shop (or even in my inventory, if you have a specific color in mind that I don't have listed), or one of my funky hats (pick from what I have or i'll make one in your favorite colors)... your choice!

Ready for the details?

Mandatory Entry:
* Tell me what your favorite recycled wool things are!
Want extra entries?
* Follow my blog, and if you already do just say that.
* Blog about this giveaway & link to it.


Make sure to leave a separate comment for the entries you complete!

Deadline: Sunday, November 14th at midnight, Central time zone. I will use random.org to pick the winners the following morning (November 15th). **please leave an email if your blogger profile does not include it or you don't have a blog. I need a way to contact you.** Once a winner is drawn I will contact them and the winner will have 48 hours to reply back before I draw a new winner.

Good luck!

It seems a bit like i'm jinxing myself by being the first commenter, but here i am anyways.

My favorite thing so far is mittens, but i've only just started making things, and leg warmers are next on my list.

I like making bags or mittens. I can't decide which is my favorite. It depends a lot on the sweater!

I've made hats and purses, and what I call boot socks and bracelet baskets from wool sweaters. But my favorite thing to make from wool sweaters is scarves--the longer, the better! And you can make 'em pretty darn long even with a medium size sweater. Love to experiment.

Best of luck at your show!

I'd like to try diaper covers since we use cloth diapers, but the running pants you made recently are also tempting.

all good!

My favorite thing to make out of recycled sweaters is armwarmers. I sell them in my Etsy shop. I also like to re-make sweaters out of sweaters!

cashmere is always my favorite - I made cashmere lined mittens for myself last winter, so deluxe! Maybe I will have time to make some for gifts this year (probably the week before christmas!).

I really love Christmas stockings made out of wool sweaters - I saw a trunk show once and this gal had made over a dozen of them for her family mixing prints and fussy cutting designs - they were awesome! I'd love to do something like that for my own family one of these days.

I love following your blog and see all the cool stuff that YOU make!

I've been coveting a recycled wool blanket... I keep making it in my mind, but never get around to sewing it. Love those cute hats!

nitabug said...

So far, I've only made one thing; a scarf made from felted sweaters combined with cotton fabric; turned out pretty good. I am hoping to make mittens soon, hopefully out of a sky blue felted sweater ( hope to get that color soon/ is hard to find/ hint hint)

Kristin Saegaert said...

Right now my favorite thing to make with recycled wool sweaters is a quilt. I'm felting the sweaters, cutting them in uniform pieces and sewing them together by hand with a blanket stitch to create a warm handmade quilt for hubby and I! It's taking longer to find the sweaters than to actually do the sewing!

Skyflowerfarms said...

I made my first woolen soakers over 13 years ago and loved them! I also made the sleeping sacks but with overall-type buttoned straps on them. Making a variety of things for the winter, and love your hats the most.
