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
