Just got to using these sweater pieces. About 75% were perfect for what I needed them for-- wooly slippers. Thanks for combining all the listings for a good deal!

Bought this for someone else but it was so pretty I am reluctant to give it up! Back to the seller for more!

Absolutely beautiful. I wear this on my winter coat and get compliments almost every day.

So pretty--pinned it to a simple black dress I wore to a wedding and it made the whole outfit!

About

Fun, Functional, Personal and Handmade

I've been a crafter my whole life. I can remember making splatter-painted sweatshirts in our garage as a child. In middle school I made a little extra money selling bracelets I had made from salvaged telephone wire from my dad's remodeled office. I began quilting in 1998 and have loved the creative process of sewing and fabric selection ever since.

I started making smaller items a few years ago for my church's annual gift shop, benefitting local charities. I love using beautiful materials like felted wool sweaters and fabric samples, giving them a second life as a fabulous and useful product.

    My most important role is as a mom to my three children and as a partner to my husband and best friend. I also like to express my creativity by making things with recycled and upcycled materials.
