This is such a great way to finally get rid of those old sweaters that just take up space in the back of your closet. Watch the tutorial from Natalie @ creme de la craft


There are two important additional steps you may want to add to the process.

  1. Felt the wool: Before you start the project,  put the sweater in a pillowcase or a mesh laundry bag (so you don’t get fuzz balls all over your machine) and washing it on a warm-water cycle, then drying it on high heat. This process shrinks the fibers to thicken the wool to make it warmer and less likely to fray or fall apart when you cut it later.
  2. Decorate your mitten: Decorate your new warm mittens however the way you like! You can even personalize them and give them as gifts.
