What a fantastic recycling idea & a great tutorial!  I just donated a trunkful of bags to my local Savers, and I've been trying to keep my stashbuilding to a minimum, but this project makes me want to run out & shop.  Smiley

You have inspired me to try my hand at making a hat and mitten set using a felted sweater. I totally love the idea. You're project is wonderful  Smiley

Both--- a few cycles in the wash--some with hot water some with cool water, and a few trips through a hot dryer.  It takes a few days---everyone's wash for a week got a random sweater thrown in with it!

I've seen patterns for these mittens before, but never with a fleece lining. That was such a good idea and will keep these super soft and comfy.

Yeah- I'm generally always cold- so a fleece lining was a must...lol
Plus- I was afraid the wool would be itchy- so the fleece took care of that!
