There are 18 different quilt ideas in this book, but wait, there's more.
A fantastic DVD accompanies this publication, so you really have two instructional tools, a book and the DVD. First time quilters will find this extremely useful, as will the more experienced quilters. 

In Sweater Renewal, Sharon Franco Rothschild goes green in full color, showing you how to rescue your old woolen knits and give them renewed life as felted creations. With little or no knitting experience, you can refashion blankets, sweaters, scarves, or even hand-knitted pieces into vibrant clothing, accessories,
and home decor. The only requirement is that they are made of wool.
The 25 colorful, cheerful projects in 
Sweater Renewal incorporate a diverse range of skills including felting, appliqué, crochet, sewing, and embroidery and range from Short, Sweet & Simple Projects using felted sweaters, such as a cell phone holder and a Fair Isle digital camera case, to Knitted, Felted & Fantastic Projects that you knit and then felt, such as a purse and a felted scarf. Most can be finished in less than a day, some in a few hours. 

Using both knitting skills and felting techniques in which knitted materials are shrunk in hot water to create softer, fuzzier fabrics, the 22 designs featured here encompass a broad array of clothing styles and designs for toddlers and young children. There's a Jurassic Jacket for aspiring paleontologists, Groovy Gloves sure to keep little fingers warm on a blustery autumn day, and a Princess Cape that will become the prize possession of any young girl. Complete technical instructions, diagrams, charts, and color photography ensure that anyone can complete the projects.
