Friday Finds: Recycled Chocolate Brown Winter mitts by RecycledandResewn

turquoise and brown wool mittens

Looking at this stylish pair of mitts you would never guess that they have been recycled and repurposed from an old brown and turquoise sweater! Teresa of RecycledandResewn started experimenting with upcycling old sweaters into warm cozy mitts by lining them with polar fleece, way back in 2005 and successfully sold more than 130 pairs last year alone. She has now branched out into pillows and totes as well. More of her amazing talent can be viewed in her fab shop!
