Just so you know, wool does not like hot water... A lesson I "learned" more than once.
This particular sweater was shrunk beyond repair, so I used it to make these:
This picture also illustrates how long it took for me to learn another lesson: Coasters are useful!
One day, I'll fix that table... Anyhow, the potholders are made of two layers. The coasters are made of one layer sewn onto some sturdy, yellow polyester felt, which you can see here:
I tried to use all scraps, so the round coaster is made from the roundish shoulder parts of the sleeves, sewn together in the middle.
The only leftovers are:
- the cuffs, which I wear as cuffs.
- the hem. I've already decided to neither make a headband nor an infinity scarf for toddlers out of it. Any other ideas?
