Sweater Refashioning Tutorial Roundup and a Giveaway!

For today's giveaway I have a friend who is donating a pair of tickets for the Pasadena Bead and Design Show show going on this weekend in Pasadena, California. I am sorry for the short notice! I will be attending and if you win the tickets we can have a mano a mano meet up!
 If you like making jewelry or would like to learn how, this is the show for you. There will be live demonstrations and workshops to attend and wearable art presentations and textile art. And of course, BEADS. To win a pair of tickets please leave a comment here and I will choose a winner  Friday evening and e-mail you the tickets .
I hope you decide to go!


I was looking for refashioned sweater tutorials to get inspiration from and to share. I am a bit of a hoarder when it comes to collecting sweaters at the thrift shops half off sales. How can you say no to a lovely cashmere sweater for only two dollars? Since most of my thrifted sweaters are made of lovely colored cashmere but are rather boring or frumpy I have to find some ideas to refashion them. After an extensive search here are some pretty interesting sweater refashions you hopefully haven't seen yet.
I also found some great new blogs in my search. If you know of any good ideas, please send me a link!
To see the source of the tutorial click the link of the blog it comes from below the photo.

I would love to copy this sweater from Anthropologie. It's on my to do list when I find the right cable knit sweater. This isn't a refashion but something I would like to try to make.

I love this country club look above. Very seventies Carol Brady chic. And if you don't know who Carol Brady from the Brady Bunch is shame on you! From Burdastyle
A Steampunk sweater refashion by Awesome Sauce.  I would wear it with a maxi skirt and some tall boots.

This is ruffly but not fussy so I love it! Tutorial found here at LilBit And Nan.
A collegiate refashion at Adventure In Dressmaking. Go team!
My favorite sweater from the above mentioned Tea Rose Home . It's so romantic.
Grosgrain Fabulous. This is from her month of sweater refashion series. I would love to make this for my toddler.
This tutorial is from i Candy Handmade. My daughter thinks this refashion would be cute for a baby too. I love the vintage feel of the lace bow.
This refashion is from Old Rags. This would be cute with toggles too.
This vintage style number from Ruffles And Stuff would be the perfect topper from one of my vintage patterns I made.
I hope you enjoyed the roundup.
Now go refashion one of your sweaters!
