More Wooly Mittens

Grey, rainy days are good for spending a little time in the craft room. Today's project was.... more mittens! I sat with my felted wool, a pile of lace and ribbons, paper, buttons and just started to imagine. My favorite is the lighter one on top. For this I used a vintage crocheted piece, old button, old tatting and old sheet music (for the paper tag). I sewed the paper tag onto the mitten, added some glitter and finished it with a wire hanger. I think I will need to take a trip to the thrift store for more wool sweaters!

These are so beautiful. I have a trip to the thrift store for wool sweaters on my list. There is a long list of projects that I want to try all with wool.

Oh Bev what a cute project. Thanks for posting your pictures. Another project I would just love to make. For sure I will be adding it to my list.

You have indeed got me hooked on looking for sweaters, either as use of the yarn or for these little cuties! They are adorable and I even looked at men's suits (a lot of wool there). So many projects, so little time before Christmas!!!!
