I love projects that reuse things, and I also like to give homemade presents. Many times, these two things work together! That's why I really liked this recycled wool sweater blanket idea. I think this would be a good present for someone, especially if they live in a colder climate. But really, even if they don't, they could take it on their camping or ski trips. I like the idea of using your old sweaters, or even your friends!, and turning it into a neat little present.
Alas, it's too late for me to make this fabulous present for Christmas, but maybe next year. If you're looking for ideas to get started for next year, don't forget to check out my list of cool stuff to make from old sweaters.
