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 checked out your blog and it's cool, you are talented and your work is truly beautiful.  You should be very proud of yourself!

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!
