Shrink and sew and you’re ready to go: creating chic felted garments can be as easy as that. Anyone who’s accidentally put a favorite sweater through the laundry and had it come out in miniature understands the basic process—and these creative, simple techniques make use of old wool garments cluttering the closet or purchased from a flea market. Just wash the clothes in hot water to produce the felted material, cut it, and stitch the fabric into any size and shape. Craft trendy beaded flower pins from sweaters dyed with Kool Aid. Create a Victorian scarf and mitten set from felt and doilies, and decorate with rows of ribbons. Give a child a snuggly bear hat that’s cute as can be. They’re all fabulous!
