Featured Blog: Resweater, and Giveaway

Giveaway now closed!

Last week I was approached by Kris of Resweater to see if I’d like to host a giveaway for her. Of course I would! Her blog was new to me, so I decided to do it for a Monday highlight.

As you might suspect from the name, Kris’ blog is all about recycling sweaters. You know I did that several times, but she takes it to a new level.

Look at all these goodies she’s made!

Diaper covers for cloth-diapering mamas:

Adorable tissue pack covers:

Reversible purse:

Crazy-cute elf slippers:

Kris says these are dryer balls, but I think they look really fun to play with too:

Kris posts lots of tutorials so you can try your hand at making something from felted wool, and if you win her giveaway, you can start for free!

Kris sells wool sweaters for recycling in her artfire shop, and will give the winner the sweater of her choice. Just leave a comment on this post. Winner will be drawn this Thursday at 9:00 pm.

Please visit Kris’ fun blog and shop and see what she’s got going on!
