Handmade pt. 4

So last night at our small group (home bible study with friends from church), I was telling someone that I had recently made throws and ornaments from felted wool. She said that she had read about making mittens out of felted wool sweaters and I couldn't stop thinking about it all night!
We got home late, but at midnight I was Googling "patterns for felted wool mittens". I came across several ideas and whipped these beauties up this morning. I used the bottom of the sweater for the cuff of the mitten and the felt flowers were cut from scraps of my last sweater blanket.
I surprised her at church tonight with the mittens. They ended up being a little big for her (and me!); next time I won't allow so much extra for the seam.
