Cut it up!!
Turned an ugly old jumper into more useful mittens and beanie! Inspired by the internet of course. Google recycled sweaters and you will find a tutorial. Or get yourself either "Felt it, Stitch it, Fabulous" by Katheryn Tidwell Bieber, or "The Crafty Minx" by Kelly Doust.
I should visit some flower making sites for a tutorial because I had a crap time making these flowers by myself. There are no short cuts to a nice fabric flower it seems. It's defiantly an "Art". lol
