    would be nice to gift these, I am sure we could find additional uses for them.

    you can also cut off the hem and make headbands for the winter. the sleeves can be sewn shut/be used for that extra pair of socks under your boots. most of the sweaters have really long sleeves so cut them shorter/little ones can use them as sweaters

    How about sewing the one end of the cut off sleeves closed to make mittens ? A little elastic in a casing tape on the upper cuff shouldn't be too challenging, I'd bet.
