Now I know what to do with all those boxes I have been saving. Unfortunately I don't have any old sweaters but there is a thrift store nearby where I can get some for very little money. I have the glue gun and other tools. It will make the box much sturdier and of course more attractive to look at. It will be good to hold some of that yarn I have been collecting. Inspiration to keep working on the sweater I have been working on. Thank you for the idea.

I have to agree that this is an excellent way to use your old sweaters so that you don't have to get rid of them when they get a hole or a snag. I love that you can soften up the baskets or bins around the house with your favorite fabrics to make the house more welcoming.

Such a cute upcycling idea! This seems like a simple craft, even for a crafting novice like me.
