Handmade pt. 6


Ok, I feel a tad silly placing such a large picture of my face in a post, but I couldn't very well have my kids or husband model this FABULOUS hat and mitten combo, could I?

I simply can't get enough of the felted wool sweaters and I keep coming up with stuff to make out of them. I've made three pairs of mittens (and given them away), and this time decided to add a hat. The mittens were from the sleeves of the sweater and the hat was from the body of the sweater.

I've got ideas for a scarf next...

Oh, and by the way, this sweater cost me $1.99, which means the mittens and hat cost me $1.99! Super thrifty, that's me!

I LOVE what Kate said. :)

They turned out awesome! I love the flower on the hat... did you do abstract stitching on it?

Those turned out beautifully!!! What an inspiration. I'm still looking at the bag of sweaters trying to bring myself to wash/felt them! Ahhh - too bad you're not my neighbor to kick me in the hiney!

Those are great! Thanks for sharing!
