Recycled Sweater Head Wrap and Cowl Scarf

I made Emily a couple of headwraps from some old sweaters and matching cowl scarves. I also made a headwrap for her cousin's 12th birthday. Don't they look so cute together? The headwrap can be worn plain or embellished. They are so quick and easy to sew. You basically cut out long rectangles, apply fabric glue to the long sides and sew the short ends together and you're done. I got the idea from Disney of Ruffles and Stuff. She's made some great tutorials, click here for the headwrap tutorial  and here for the cowl scarf. Thanks so much, Disney, Emily loves hers. They keep her warm and stylish.

They were made from these two sweaters.

Happy Valentine's Day!!


  1. Very cute! And a good way to reuse an old sweater.

  2. They look really cute Trudy, and a great way to re-use an old jumper that is not getting worn much anymore... Emily looks gorgeous in that warm pink colour.
    I hope you have a wonderful day!
    love from Carolyn

  3. What a fun project Trudy! Your daughter is so adorable and reminds me of my 25 year old stepdaughter when she was her age. It's nice to see project for kids this age..

  4. Those are so cute. Way to recycle!

  5. Beautiful headbands - great upcycle!

    Thanks for linking to a Round Tuit!
    Hope you have a fabulous week!
