Mittens, Etc.'s Profile

About

I've been sewing since I was nine years old and love, love to sew. My recycling started when I heard of a thrift store hauling their non-sale items to the landfill. So I would intervene once in awhile and get bags and bags of clothing. I started making quilts and comforters for charities from the clothes and jeans.
Now I search thrift stores for wool sweaters and make mittens. I wash them in hot water and this shrinks and felts the wool. Then I cut, sew and line them with fleece for very warm and cozy mittens.
