Upcycled sweater mittens




I have been felting some old sweaters again. This time I made some mittens. They are not the best. I didn't have a pattern so they are a not the best shape. I tried putting a cuff on with the sweater bottom. I didn't get them quit tight enough. They are very warm though. I think they will be just fine for an Atlanta winter.
I also have been cutting 8x8 squares with my leftovers. These I am sewing together by hand to make a little lap quilt to snuggle up with while watching TV. I only have 3 squares so far, but it will get there! I also got a form to make flowers with roving on top of the felted wool. I will do a seperate post on that dandy little tool.
