I am often seen buying old woollen jumpers from charity shops and boot fairs due to an increasing demand for my upcycled blankets, and after cutting the million squares that I need - Im often left with little bits - especially the cuffs.

Now as I was watching my children play with the 24 little cuffs I had left over from my recent cutting up experience - I had a little spark of imagination (cue husband sighing in despair) and I have produced a vast array of these.......................... Cant wait for the cooler weather now Smiley

So - take a load of off cuts from machine shrunk jumpers...

Combine with the cuffs from same said jumpers

Add a little inspiration, invite your mates round for photo opportunity and voila  - Warm wrists


LATEST project - I'm compiling a "handed down" recipes boom and so if I get you in a swap, would you be so kind to find a recipe from your childhood. type it up - if you want to decorate, then please do :
