Overview

Transform Cast-Off Sweaters into Sweet Felted Treats



Warm Fuzzies is filled with more than 30 cute and colorful projects made from wool sweaters, including cozy pillows and throws as well as stylish hats, scarves and handbags. There's something to make for everybody, including all the beloved "little creatures" in your life. Your pup will look adorable in the Haute Dawg Doggie Sweater, and your favorite princess will adore the Teacup Jumper with the playful mouse finger puppet tucked in the pocket. There are plenty of projects for grown-ups, too, like the Rainbow Bag with rows of colorful waves and the Rustic Throw with reverse appliqué leaves.



The best thing about these projects is how easy they are to make . . . and there's no knitting involved! Simply throw old wool sweaters into the wash, then cut them apart to sew into felted goodies.



Start with the sweet Cupcake Pincushions–they're so easy, and so very cute!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Traditional felt making requires considerable equipment and work space as well as a hefty time commitment. But what if you're on a budget, short on time, and want to make things out of felt without having to make the felt yourself? Grab some old wool sweaters, says author White, felt them quickly in your washing machine, and-voilà-you have felt that can be crafted into anything from pincushions to the cupcakes on the book's cover. White, who has worked for many years in the children's apparel industry, designed these 30-odd projects made from repurposed sweaters. Each includes step-by-step photo instructions, and most require a minimum of materials plus beginning to intermediate sewing skills. Generally recommended for public libraries.
