    These are so cute and would make great gifts all year long. I just happened to watch an episode of Martha and they were making them. They are made from recycled wool sweaters.

    Enjoy!!!

    That Martha comes up with some fun ideas, those are great, I have some friends who love tea and love to sew. My mom watched Martha and then dyed Easter eggs using silk ties. What a blast.

    The cord is a strip of the wool sweater that has been felted by washing it in hot water in the washing machine.
