Our Review

It's the time of year to hunt out your winter wardrobe, and if last year's sweaters aren't looking as chic as you remember, Sweater Surgery by Stefanie Girard will teach you how to chop, snip and sew them in to fabulous new accessories.


Learn how to chop, felt, and stitch old sweaters in to a variety of clothes, accessories and jewellery, such as a Jujube Necklace, Color-Me-Happy Striped Purse, Snow White Scarf, Toe Tappin' Booties, and a Hoot-Toot the Owl plushie.


You can't usually find sweater fabric you can buy by the yard, so grab this opportunity to take your old clothing under the knife and give them new life!
