Felted Woolies are things made from reclaimed, recycled wool. I find wool at thrift stores and garage sales. I clean it, felt it or unravel it, and make new things. I seem to have a bit of trouble focusing on just one project--so I make a lot of different things, practical and not so practical.

Grandma's Buttons

Jen gave me a whole box full of her Grandma's buttons. I made her this piece. It may turn into a wall hanging, it may be part of a pillow. I'm going to ask for her input before I finish it. I'm thinking maybe even a frame.

I don't know much about old buttons, but these are old!


  1. Oh! I love what you've done with the old buttons. I reckon a small version could become a needle case or purse and a bigger one could be a tote bag. That style would be great for a box lid or journal cover. Good luck at the street festival; it sounds like a lot of fun. Eli

  2. That is great! be sure to post what you do with it. I'm intrigued!
