Even the ribbon trim is recycled because I cut it off an old jacket.
The felting was fun to do. I had purchased this lamb's wool/angora blend sweater at Good Will. I put it in the washing machine with very hot water and a little dish detergent, then dried it in a hot dryer. I did this three times and what was once a sweater that fit me turned into a very thick sweater that might fit a baby. It was very hard to sew through by hand. To weave those ribbons through I had to use pliers to pull the needle. I purchased and fleted six more sweaters (just got carried away) and have to decide how to use them. I'm thinking of a Kindle cover and more purses.
I wish you all a very happy, healthy, prosperous and creative New Year!.
