I love using felted wool sweaters to make diaper covers, so..........


Longies from sleeves and shirt from body


Same as above, but I used the turtle neck as the waist band


Longies from sleeves, and soaker with added legs from sleeves

Super duper! I've got a pile of thrifted sweaters waiting to be felted for this very reason. Did you know that some longies made from "vintage repurposed sweaters" are going for over $50? Craziness!

I know!  Its crazy, especially when I can make at least two covers from a $.50-$1 thrift store sweater!

Great project!  How did you work the neckline for the little sweaters; did you resize them or is it the original neckline?  I need to finish some for my daughter but the neckline part has me hesitant.  Thanks in advance!

I love these under my daughter's dresses in the winter; tights don't seem thick enough when it is cold!

I just used the original neckline.  Most of them shrink enough, so I just leave them.  A few are a little big, but I'm not really sure how to resize the neck either, so I just left them.
