Now that I live where I need things like scarves, hats, and gloves (unheard of in Phoenix), tutorials like this one from Down With Clutter really catch my eye. Two things I love: refashioning and sewing. And one thing I need: warmth. A great way to get more use out of those too small sweaters I seem to have an excess of!
