DIY beanies Tutorial ~ DIY handmade beanies, made from an old sweater, has been on my to-do list for quite some time. I was also craving a bright beanie for my wardrobe to help liven up some of my outfits. I finally got around to making one from a pink sweater yesterday. I'm so happy with how it came out and I can't wait to wear it with some of my outfits for photographs. It was super easy and only took me about 10 minutes to make.
Take an old sweater. Cut a slit in along the shoulder down about 7". Fold over raw edge and sew in place. Sew a piece of ribbon about 15" long to one side of neckline and another ribbon to the other side of the neckline. Tie together and presto! New sweater!.
