Felted Wool Mittens Tutorial

(click on the picture and it will open in a larger size, then you can see the fine print:)

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!

These mittens were made for a friend as a birthday present.

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!

Jättesnygga vantar! Jag vill också... fast det är inte riktigt säsong för vantar längre, vilket känns ovanligt trist, med tanke på min inspiration. Ska i alla fall hålla ögonen öppna för billiga helylletröjor på loppisar, do redo verkar så roligt.
