One sweater, three gloves

I had a great luck at a thrift shop the other day. I picked up a Jill Stuart coat for 1500 yen (about $15). I was so thrilled! The size fit me perfectly too. Along with the coat, I picked up this sweater/vest thingy for 100 yen ($1). The sweater was in a good condition, but it sat in my closet for a bit, never been worn. So I decided to remake the sweater into something fun. The sweater has an interesting texture, three different knits.
First, I cut up the sweater along the seam line to see how much fabric I have. Then I used rib parts as wrist bands for the mitts, sewed it up with sewing machine and added a bow and heart charm.

This sweater was remade into three different mitts! Such an easy and fun project:)

Left: Light gray lace hand warmers, middle: Light gray bow mitts, right: Light gray simple hand warmers

Easy? Pffft. Only for a talented seamtress like you. ;) I doubt I'd be able to make something so cute from an old sweater. You're very creative!
