Tonight as I was perusing recent Facebook posts, I noticed that an acquaintance of mine posted a link to an on-line sewing tutorial.  This is a woman who is married to one of my husband’s former colleagues, so I don’t know her all that well, but I didn’t think that she was into sewing.  I had to check what she had posted.

The tutorial that she posted provided instructions on how to make “swants” – pants from old sweaters.  It had detailed instructions re: what type of sweater to choose, how to cut it apart and then piece it back together to create a pair of crazily patterned but toasty warm sweater-pants or swants.

To be honest with you – as I started to read it – I was actually thinking that maybe I should try making some. They sure looked cozy.  But then as the pictures got more and more ridiculous I realized that as much as I am all for repurposing clothing –  I would not be caught dead wearing a pair of swants.

While the swants models try very hard to sell the concept via pictures… I just don’t think this is a look most of us can pull off.  But maybe for a kid??  Anyway – if you are looking for a laugh – check out the pictures and accompanying video in the swants tutorial.  I laughed os hard I nearly wet my pants.
