Hey, I made two pairs of mittens in just a day! Last fall I picked up some 100% wool sweaters at Goodwill (1/2 off). Washed them in the hottest water we have-lukewarm. Threw them in the dryer and viola! felted sweaters. Made a pattern for mittens, cut them out of the sweaters, a little decorating and I have this:
I made them for Christmas gifts, but I kinda like the blue ones........
Now how easy was that?
Happy Christmas present making.
Wow! They are cute! What a neat , thrifty idea! I would like to try that!
I am learning to knit and hope to get some pot holders done for presents, Idon't know if I can!
You seem to haave many similar interest as I do!
God's Blessings to you!
I've been wanting to try that but don't dare.. How well do they still on the wrist? That was my concern when I thought I would make them?
Thanks for sharing.. they look great..
They turned out cute. Great Job. I
Ok, so you mean you shunk the sweaters, cut out the mittens, stitched them together and there they are? Even I can do that and how cute are they? I think I'd like some with a blanket stitch done around them. I am going to look for wool sweaters.
Let me know though if I missed something in making htem.
thank-you for your prayers.
The mittens turned out to be just darling! I am felting sweaters to make into purses Fun Fun!
Those are GREAT!! I have got to remember that next time I go to Goodwill. What a wonderful idea!
I love that. I have a friend who makes diaper covers out of them, but I like to knit them myself. I will have to tell about that idea.
Oh these are so cute!!!!! Would you mind sharing on the list??????
Those are awesome! I need to find some wool sweaters! What a great idea and easy!
