    I just got these finished and they were so much fun to make! I am waist deep in my quilting room in felted sweaters. So far I have 7 pair nearly finished. I hope you like them. :-D

    P.S. the pair that looks grey is actually the prettiest baby blue!!!

    I love that idea. Am I correct in thinking these are made from recycled sweaters that you felted and cut to make mittens? Loving that idea alot!

    Very nice! They look so warm and cosy. Are they hard to make?

    They are quite time consuming and the hardest part is finding the wool to make them with. Then actually cutting them up after felting of course is so hard to do because they look so pretty. Some of the sweaters I felted I can wear and never made it to the cutting pile. LOL Many friends and loved ones are getting hand felted mittens this Christmas.

    If you utube you can find this dude talking about how to do the mittens and I laughed all the way through it. Such a blast!!!

    What a great idea for recycling. Felted mittens are so warm.
