I felted/fulled a thrift store sweater, then cut it up, and then needle felted some flames on to it. Then I stitched the pieces together with some left over red wool yarn.  Grin





It's not exactly like I envisioned when I started, but I still like it well enough.

It does not match my kitchen...at all. I have some flame/ tattoo loving friends who could probably appreciate it.

Oh C-Kate  that is really pretty.  Am a bit concerned about safety as an oven mitt though.  The wisps of the needle felting and the yarn at the edges, could catch fire around a very hot oven or open flame burner.  It might be wise to full them again to get the yarn and the roving to shink and form a harder crust/surface - or to designate them as microwave or low heat oven mitts.


Still, a lovely specimen of needle felting into a base fabric.  Itsn't it great to punch into fulled sweater knit?

I agree GraceO. I was thinking it may be a purely decorative oven mitt. Or I may toss it into the washer and see what happens. I haven't decided yet. I hadn't thought about microwave only. That's a good idea. The last thing I want is a flaming oven mitt that really is flaming!  Grin

Very cool design.  Definately agree that real flames would probably detract...

Oh good.  Was hesitant to say anything as hate to dampen enthusiam,  But- Yes those wonderfully crafty hands are worth protecting.  Love the concept and the design.

those are flamin' good!  Grin  although- as GraceO said- it might bring out the wrong kind of flames in the kitchen. Smiley still- hot hot hot.

Oh don't worry, I take criticism pretty well, especially if it's for my own good.  Grin It's good to have people who want to prevent your hands from combusting. I was originally going to make regular ole mittens, but then I cut it out a little too big. Rather than cut it smaller I figured, lets see what a sweater oven mitt looks like.
