Happy Feet! Felted feet!

So, I think I mentioned that I am making all of my gifts this year. I am taking liberty to do everything from “recycled” things. I found this awesome sweater at the Goodwill in Lansing. It called to me. It was worth the $3.60—because it was 100% wool! Yippee!

In order for something to “felt” well, it has to be wool. If you are new to felting, get out to the Goodwill and look for some wool. Except if you live in Rockford, then I will have bought up all the good stuff! (Tomorrow is $1.00 day, and I’m all over it). Felting is the process of those little fibers meshing together during the agitation process (usually in the washing machine). The next time you “ruin” a sweater by washing it in the machine, think about making something with it!

This is mine. I lined them in pink fleece–soft and cozy.

Because I was short on fabric, I chose some leather scraps for the bottom. What? You don’t have leather scraps just lying around?

Dig those leggings. I lifted up my skirt and revealed my black leggings..

So, how did Emily’s turn out? Just fine.

The dear daughter was sent to the fabric store with a scrap of fabric to buy fleece for the lining. I think she did a pretty good job matching!

Of course I had to make a little hat with the leftovers…
