I picked up this sweater today at a thrift store for 50 cents. It's toddler size, and had a snag on the front, so I wanted to re-purpose it. I've been wanting to try out making some boot socks, and let me tell you, this was one of the quickest and easiest projects I have ever done.

Turn them inside out, and fold them over. Now time to wear, it was THAT simple!
What to do with those little left over scraps?
I've been wanting to try out making sweater ornaments, here's how I did it:
First I peeled off the thread of a thrift store ornament, pack of 5 for 50 cents. Next, I put them into the sleeves (remember, this was a toddler sized sweater). Then, I used a hot glue gun to seal up the ends.
And here is the end result, cozy winter sweater ornaments. I love how they look like over-sized pom-pom's.
Now what to do with THESE scraps???
