Wool Sweaters Die so Toys Can Live

Check out these adorable stuffed toys upcycled from wool sweaters! I love the term upcycling... instead of being recycled into the same old thing or version of it, paper to paper, plastic to plastic, upcycling gives an old item an extreme makeover!

Instead of trashing old wool sweaters, the mastermind behind Viola Studio at Etsy breathes new life into them, and they become precious, huggable toys. Why didn't I get the craftiness gene!?

Go check out all of her fun creatures from giraffes and puppy dogs to moose and penguins. And a bit of trivia in case you're wondering, because I was... the plural of moose is moose, not meese.
