DIY Slouch Beanie - YouTube Video


If someone asked me to describe myself in three words I don't think sentimental would top that list. It's not something that I think about when I think of myself, but that couldn't be further from the truth! I have saved so many special mementos in the past. I have shoe boxes filled with movie tickets, wine corks, seashells, dried flower petals, and the list goes. Now, as a mother, I find myself saving things of my son's that he has outgrown, toys and mementos of his childhood. I'll save them until we have another child, until I have grandkids, or until the disintegrate, ha!

There are a few pieces that I love and I thought would be fun to repurpose. Things that I can wear and that, eventually, he can wear again, too! An easy DIY that I came up with is repurposing a sweater into a slouch beanie. This stars sweater made a fantastic slouch beanie and it was so quick and easy to make. Follow along below as I show you in a few easy steps how to make you own!

What You'll Need:
- sweater or knit top
- scissors
- sewing machine or fabric glue
