Felted Sweater Shopping

The postie delivered a great parcel last week - a big box full of felted woollen sweater pieces. Yum.


I've felted a few wool sweaters myself in the past but wanted to add a selection of bright colours to my stash without having to bother buying and shrinking and storing a gazillion bulky thrift store garments.

So I searched on Etsy instead and found Do Dad Chick who was selling just what I wanted: selection packs of small sweater pieces, in all sorts of lovely colours.


I'm really excited to have all these fab colours to play with, the texture of recycled sweater felt is so different to the felt I usually work with, all sorts of new crafty possibilities are opened up!

Felted sweaters are great when you can get them already felted. Though I've had some success with felting it's alot of elbow grease :)

I'm so glad to see you working with recycled materials! Way to go and what a great time saving idea to find someone who's already shopped, felted and cut up the materials for you! Happy felt crafting!
