While I was out Christmas shopping last week, I saw a woman standing in line who was wearing one of the most unique scarves I’ve seen in a long while: a pieced series of funky flowers that looked to be made of felted wool. I immediately fell in love with it, and I knew I would have to try my hand at creating my own version.
I love the look and feel of wool felt, but it can sometimes be hard to come by, and it tends to be rather pricey. To make this particular scarf, though, I knew no other medium would do. Did you know that you can easily create your own wool felt for pennies on the dollar? That is exactly what I did here, using a few clothing items I found on the 99-cent rack at my local thrift store. I would love to share with you exactly how I did it. And for the sewing novices out there, you’ll be thrilled to hear that if you can cut circles and tie knots, you have all the skills required to tackle this project!
