Nothing says "Winter" to me like wool.
I love it and always have.
I just wanted to share a couple recent projects made with my favorite fiber...
These soft wool bangles are a cinch to make.
I used wool yarn and a Nifty Knitter Loom to make them.
Then I felted them in the washing machine when I did laundry.
A quick tip is to place small items you are felting in a nylon stocking to wash.
I usually place as many as I can in one stocking and tie a knot between items.
They are so comfortable and would make a great project for Christmas gifts.
I love them as they are but you could fancy them up with some beads and fibers....
Next is one of my favorites..
This sweet little owl bag is a great example of recycling at its finest...
A sweater, some buttons, a belt and wool skirt scraps turned into this...
It is the perfect size for keys, phone and small wallet...
I do sell or give away most of what I make, but every now and then there is something I cannot bear to part with.
This little owl bag is one of those things.
I like this little candle mat too.
The sunflowers were cut from felt and the centers were glued on.
Then I stiffened them with glue, coffee and cinnamon.
Then just a couple quick stitches attached them to the double layer candle mat which actually came from a thrift store skirt.
It is the perfect fall and winter candle mat.
And here is one last woolen treasure.
This primitive owl is also created from thrift store woolens.
I love stitching by hand while watching tv.
It is so relaxing....
Thanks for stopping by...
I will be linking up with as many of these blogs as I can...
