+ DIY Sweater into infinity scarf and beanie refashion on the 9th day of XMAS tutorials


Just another quick diy that is maybe one of the easiest and cutest and best transformations you can make from an old sweater. And this beanie on my 4 year old (yes I have a tiny head) is adorable.  And this took all of 5 to 10 minutes. Thats it.

1. Cut off everything from the underarm area up.
2. Then sew up the front (if you sweater is an open one like mine). Then roll  the edge under a little and topstitch or hand stitch to hid the frayed edge.

1. Cut off the sleeves, and cut them open. I used the sleeves because the knit ribbing at the bottom is great for the knit ribbing on the edge of the beanie.
2. Lay the two sleeves on top of each other, outsides touching. Then trace the shape of a beanie.
3. Sew the markings. Zig zag stitch the edges to prevent fraying.

    Grazie mille per questa buona idea…. saluti dall’Italia!

    Good idea….thank you so much… best wishes from Italy!

  2. This is quite a genius idea! I love it, but unfortunately I barely wear sweater and so have none to refashion. Bummer! xo

  3. I almost tossed out three old sweaters yesterday but then decided to keep them just in case. So glad I did! I think I’m going to make matching beanies for my twin babies. Thanks so much!

  4. Good idea !

    Love this! Instead of a hat with the sleeves, I’m making slouchy arm warmers. Going to add elastic thread at the top to keep them from falling down.

  9. I love a girl with fashion sense and not afraid to cut into to something. Very cute clothing and ideas

  16. Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon everyday. It will always be interesting to read content from other authors and use something from their websites.
