Fingerless Gloves from Old Sweater

Waste not want not right?  I used an old shrunken sweater to make fingerless gloves, boot toppers, and a cute ear warmer!  That's pretty great right?! 3 for the price of one!

To make the fingerless gloves I basically cut out 2 rectangles through both sides of the sweater so you have 4 pieces.  I sewed the edges and then sewed the 2 sides together making to leave about an inch open on the correct side for your thumb to go through.

Make sure to leave the top and bottom open, you gotta out your hand through it!!!

And the finished product!

And here are the bi-products...

Headband with preppy bow from the bottom of the sweater...

...and boot toppers from the arms.

So there you have it you can use a sweater for three different and matching accessories.  I love my new cold wear and am excited I got to re-use the sweater that got shrunk.
