Sweater Chop Shop, The

Sewing One-of-a-Kind Creations from Recycled Sweaters

Recycle, re-create, re-enjoy! You don’t even need a sewing machine to turn old sweaters into new wearables, blankets, pillows, and dolls that are fresh, playful, and captivating. It’s as easy as felting the wool, cutting the pieces for your new project, and stitching everything together using simple hand-sewing skills. Noted designer Crispina ffrench shares her techniques and passion as she introduces you to the beautiful possibilities to be found in old sweaters.

“Crispina’s blankets and throws and rugs are piled on and over each other on my beds, chairs, couches and floors. She’s a great artist who understands texture and how it adds individuality and comfort to a home, not to mention a car, or an old refurbished orange truck seat!!” — Carly Simon

“Crispina makes the most beautiful soulful blankets, pillows, and sweaters, out of people’s old sweaters. In this amazing and magical book she shares her secrets so that you can do it too.”
— Ben Cohen, cofounder of Ben & Jerry’s Homemade
