Crafty winter projects with wool ~ upcycling and new

Being in the Southern Hemisphere, Australia enjoys a lot of sunshine even in the coldest season. Australia experiences an exciting variety of weather, and depending on which part of the country you're in, there can be snow and temperatures below 0 degrees, or you can be swimming at the beach and sunbathing!

Whatever the weather where you are, the Winter Season is a great time to get stuck into some winter craft and sewing projects that will keep you busy during the longer evenings ...

We scoured the internet for some awesome projects to bring you, so let's start by being resourceful and upcycling, and let's make a hat from an old sweater.

Firstly, go check your wardrobe for an old forgotten sweater and let's give it a new lease on life. It’s a quick project that will help your knitting skills AND keep you warm for years to come! We start with an old sweater, repurpose it into a hat and then use the sleeves to make fingerless gloves!
