The joy of felting...

Recent Thrift Store Finds...

I lucked out this weekend - I found a wool skirt for $5.50 and then a fabulous wool Benetton sweater for $4. And yes I felted them as soon as I got in the door! The skirt is huge and definitely an ugly skirt but groovy as pillow covers. I made two 18" x 18" pillow covers. I used a brown wool mix for the back. I probably have enough of the fabric from the skirt to make two more covers!

Here's the before then after shot for the skirt...

AFTER

Today I'll be finishing off a 14" x 14" pillow cover I started yesterday to complete the set - this is being made from an old Jacob turtleneck that's a lovely light blue. I probably paid $5 for the turtleneck at a thrift store - I never really wore it since it was super itchy!

Hopefully I can also start cutting up the Benetton sweater. I'll be using the sleeves for more baby booties - the colours are fun and bright!

Other Projects On the Go

I also plan to sand my end table this afternoon. It's gorgeous out today - a good day for hanging out on the deck and crafting... This is the view from our deck. You gotta love the Sunshine Coast!
