Felted Wool Mittens Tutorial
Recycling old wool garments is a passion. Together with my fabric I store many felted sweaters, skirts and cardigans. I thrift most of the material, there are a lot of sweaters out there! They have to be 100% wool to felt well and not rip at the seem when cut into. When they are felted you do not need to zig-zag the edges! You can make mittens, slippers, leg warmers, wrist warmers, re-design a sweater, a skirt, totes and bags, pouches, broches... just about anything!
My camera is again unwilling to let go of her pictures and give them to the computer, but as soon as I get the problem fixed I'll put up pictures of some of my other finnished projects,
Let me know about your projects!
All the best!
