HASH(0x9a56e71c) out of 5 stars Save your old wool sweaters. 9 Sept. 2009
By Jo Schram - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is great for beginners who crochet or knit but want to recycle old wool sweaters by turning them into felt and making them into something else.

However for those of us who don't crochet or knit it is somewhat of a bummer.

Many cute items with crochet added, but I for one do NOT knit or crochet and have NO desire to do such. So for those of you who want to do both this is the book for you.

Nice photos and colorful.

HASH(0x9a56eb48) out of 5 stars Sweater Renewal 6 Feb. 2009
By Aardvark Marketing - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was disappointing. The only project I thought was "handmade" looking and not "home made" looking was the one on the cover (which enticed me to purchase this book) I thought it looked like elementary school projects.

HASH(0x9a56ed70) out of 5 stars Fun Book 10 Sept. 2008
By Linda Lanese - Published on
Format: Paperback
Pay a visit to your older relatives or garage sales and thrift shops and search for old wool sweaters and stock up because you will need them for the projects in this book. It does not matter if they are moth eaten, because the holes will disappear or add character when felted.
This book is a guide to redesigning, recycling, and renewing your wool sweaters; you'll transform knits that have been felted into eco friendly sweaters, bags, and accessories.

HASH(0x9a56eee4) out of 5 stars Sweater Renewal Worth The Read 13 April 2011
By Whimsey - Published on
Format: Paperback
I'm just beginning my "felting book" collection, and this is a nice addition. Aside from my box of old sweaters from the thrift shops, I've moved to Florida and am tired of protecting my own sweaters from the heat, humidity, and dreaded moths so prevalent here. If I'm not going to wear them, I may as well make something useful out of them. My favorite chapter in this book was on knitting needle holders. The author is very creative, writes well, and the photographs, though not the brilliant, shiny stuff from those Stampington magazines, are good enough, and you definitely get the idea of how her creations look when complete. I enjoyed the book so much I blogged about it, and I'll keep my eye out for more of her publications. For more crafting ideas, visit me at [...]

HASH(0x96f22054) out of 5 stars Perfect for kids and teens 21 Feb. 2011
By Laurenagi - Published on
Format: Paperback
I gave a copy of this book to every student in my Fiber and Textile class at our homeschool co-op. They are 6 to 15 years old and really seem to enjoy it. My hope was to inspire them to continue sewing and looking for "found materials" instead of feeling discouraged over the cost of purchasing supplies.

Sweater Renewal walks the reader through the steps of choosing materials, felting in a washing mashine, basic patterns, stitches, and a wide variety of project ideas.

Every week I see students who are excited to show off the pieces they are working on (even though our class ended last semester). What's better than that?
