I bought a thrift store sweater, thinking I could use it for my iPod cases, but by the time it had felted properly, it was too thick to sew easily. So I made jewelry with it!



I just cut little circles in the felt, and threaded beads on some wire, then stuck the wire through a circle (it works best if you kind of sew with the wire across the whole circle, if that makes sense) then more beads, etc. The earrings are those dangly pin things, threaded with beads and felt using the same technique. It was fun and didn't take long. Cutting the circles was the hardest thing.

If felt was a person, I would marry it! I love felt...
