Turn a Tight Sweater Into a Cardigan

When your child's pullover sweaters become too tight to wear, turn them into a cardigan by cutting them straight down the front and binding the front edges with an attractive trim.

Works for an adult sweatshirt too. I got identical sweatshirts on sale, so I cut one down the front and faced the edges with firm, contrasting fabric. You could put in a separating zipper too.

I like the idea of the zipper. Just buy a sweater or sweatshirt a size or two bigger than normal or when it's washed, it might be too small. This is a good idea for Christmas presents for my grandkids!!
