This is the companion instructable to Sew an upcycled sweater scarf. You can make both projects using the same sweater, and create a matching set for maximum warmth!
Step 1: What you'll need
- One old sweater (it can be made of anything - fabric, knitted or crocheted - it doesn't matter)
- One half yard/meter of fleece, in a color that matches your sweater
- Matching color of thread
- Straight pins
- Yard/meter stick or measuring tape
- Four matching buttons, 3/4" diameter
- Sewing needle
- Seam ripper
- Scraps of felt
- Hot-glue gun
- sewing machine*
*This project is put together using a sewing machine, so I have outline the steps of the instructable as such, HOWEVER, this does not mean it cannot be completed by hand. In fact, I commend you if you choose to sew this scarf project by hand. It takes a lot of patience - of which I have never had.
Step 2: Harvesting the fabric
Lay the sweater flat and find the shoulder seam. Use the scissors to cut along the inside of the shoulder seam to separate the sleeve from the body of the sweater. Do the same for both sleeves.
