* Felted scarf and mittens

Posted on November 20th, 2003 by maitreya. Filed under Felting, Projects with Instructions, Sewing/Fabric Crafts.


I know it looks like I got this idea from Craftster, but it’s a coincidence. I had this nice wool jacket my mom got me, but my dear husband put it in the wash and it felted. The felt turned out to be pretty nice, though, so I cut it up and made a scarf and mittens. I made the scarf out of the two arms (you can see how the cuffs make a nice edging at the ends) and a few shorter pieces from the body that I sewed together. It was a little uneven along the edges where I sewed the pieces together, so I trimmed it up. For the mittens, I traced around my hand on a piece of tracing paper, giving it about an extra inch all around, and cut it out as a pattern. Then I pinned it to the felt and cut out 4 pieces. Then I sewed each pair together on my machine. They turned out a little snug, but my hands do fit, and after a few wearings, they’ve stretched to fit even better.
