Well, now I have a new sweater sleeve project to add to my portfolio and it all started when I saw this cute sweater at the thrift store.
It’s purple so it caught my eye, of course. And I love the ruffle around the bottom and the sleeves. It doesn’t show in the picture but is has a stain and it was discounted. I have a hard time buying a sweater to cut up that could be worn by someone. But if the sweater makes it to the discount rack and has a stain, then I don’t feel badly at all taking it and giving it a new life.
I brought it home, gave it a good washing (Mom), and cut the sleeves off.
I’d been saving these yogurt cups for a while. Don’t know why, but I liked the size and shape of them.
Then I simply slipped the yogurt cup inside the sleeve so the ruffle faced up. I tucked the cut side of the sleeve under and voila!
These would be adorable on your Easter table as treat cups or any time throughout the spring. Just find your favorite spring-y colors and have fun embellishing them.
Impress and have fun with this easy dyed egg hack. This trick makes even the least crafty person an Easter egg decorating wiz. My family really gets into dyeing Easter eggs. Despite being a crafter, I am not very successful at dyeing Easter eggs. My children try to encourage me, “Oh, Mama. Those are….nice. You…
I’ve lived in Philadelphia, the home of the world’s best cannoli (and a lot of the world’s best food). As a result, I confess that I’m bit of a cannoli snob. Since the military has stationed us in too many places that make a cannoli snob cry, I’ve adapted this recipe for Cannoli Pie. It’s…
My husband thoroughly enjoys dyeing Easter eggs and he’s passed the tradition on to our children. You may remember that last year I shared the Mr. and Mrs. Humpty Dumpty that my youngest daughter designed. We usually dye eggs the day before Easter, so these are photos of last year’s creations. Please let this proud mama share…
What a cute idea! Would be perfect for hosting a party for kids. Pinned! Visiting from 733 Link Party!
I love your obsession with re-purposed sleeves – I gotta trust a gal with healthy obsessions!!
How very cute! And who doesn’t also love those little chocolate eggs??!Be sure to stop in at Cranberry Morning. I’m having a spring sale on all my homemade vegan soaps! 🙂
I love it! I wish I was a bit craftier. Sigh.
Thanks for linking up at Fabulously Frugal Thursday! Check back next week to see if you’re a featured post. We won’t be able to feature you if there’s no link back to the party.
What a cute idea! I love a good upcycle! I popped over from Tatertots & Jello– thanks for sharing!~Abby =)
This is an amazing project! I write for Crafting a Green World and we do a Green Crafts Showcase every month to showcase awesome upcycling/recycling projects like this one! You should enter it if you’re interested!
Adorable! I love it when something can be reused in such a great way!
I’m so with you, Susan. It also helps me not feel as bad when I’m using recycled materials if the craft doesn’t go well (which does happen on occasion 😉
You are just so crafty! I love this idea! You were so lucky to find a sweater that is a lovely color and one that has those cute sleeves!
Thank you for sharing at the In and Out of the Kitchen link party. I look forward to seeing what you bring next week!
love these cups and love the roses too! Thank you for linking them up at our linky party!
