Recycling Sweaters


When we moved in to our apartment about a year and a half ago, I bought a bunch of wool sweaters from Goodwill to felt and turn into pillows. (To felt them, I just washed them on hot with some detergent and dried them on high.) I ended up making about 6 pillows and still have some sweaters left, so I recently made some into Christmas stockings. I am also making a shawl out of some and thinking about a blanket, although we have enough blankets. If anyone has any good ideas to use the rest of my felted sweaters, let me know! This is phase one of the closet clean out project.
