My love for turtlenecks has waned as I’ve gotten older, and I guess, since I’ve moved south. I love loose, lovely scarves and get annoyed by tight, itchy turtlenecks. So, in my upcycling frenzy, I have taken apart a few turtlenecks — some sweaters I’ve refashioned into cardigans, others have gone the way of the purse upcycle. Needless to say, I had a couple of turtleneck “necks” in my stash. Okay, so that’s a little weird, but true.
If you find yourself with a turtleneck no longer connected to a sweater, try this quick upcycle!
Then I put the seam in the center of the inner circle.
So cute, my daughter wanted one. Took out another random turtleneck piece and here we go again!
Try it for yourself…or buy the original sweater purse in the Pursenal Issues Etsy Shop and receive the matching red headband as a bonus! Happy Upcycling!
