Scrap Basket

Since making the itty bitty bag, I’ve been stuffing it full of bits of fabric, ribbon, and yarn. Well what to do with all that? I’ve also been piling up the cones of itty yarn. I think “oh this will be great for xyz” and then just never use it, or never as much as I think I will. So some bits of craft leftovers and some remaining yarn on a cone = felted basket goodness. Without having weave in all those ends because of the felting, it’s the perfect thing to use up all those scraps.

Recycled Peace Ornaments

I have never really been a fan of decorating for holidays though, so I wanted something that could be used for a season. Winter Season. I like decorating for the season instead of the holiday. I guess I feel like it allows me to enjoy what I’ve done a little longer.

This project calls for felt and just about any will work great, but I really like using recycled sweaters and hence the name. I have a stash of old felted sweaters and this just seemed to call for soft white and red cabled felt.
