Vintage Craft Inspiration – Knitted Patchwork Sweater

knitted patchwork sweater 1070's diy crafts fashion ideas

So this is a DIY where you need to call a bunch of friends and tell them to come over with their old sweaters so you can cut them up and share patches to make new sweaters for all of you.

I don’t know. Although I kind of like the idea, I also find the whole thing confusing. There are many questions popping up in my head when I see this.

How do you even cut into something that is knitted and make that work for you?
Will it not unravel before you have managed to cut out a perfect square?
What where the odds that you even had enough friends, all with similar knitted sweaters AND willing to cut up their clothing just to share it with you?
