I am going through all my clothing because the Amvets are picking up a BIG load here tomorrow. Being a crafter I always hold onto clothing with materials that I think I can recycle and boy it is hard to let go, but I am taking the plunge. I have to make sure that none of the sweaters have enough wool in them to felt after seeing this array of goodies I can make from Martha’s Christmas gift ideas. Taken from her site: “Large and small pieces of felted-wool sweaters can create a variety of attractive pouches: A hot-water-bottle cover was cut from a turtleneck sweater, an eyeglass case began life as an argyle sweater, a waistband forms the top of a tiny stocking, and a portion of a sleeve became a case for an MP3 player”.
