I put together this set of brooches from Etsy. To do it, I looked at just about every recycled felt brooch on Etsy. There are fabulous things available. My favorites are by WanderingLydia and Woollyfabulous and mdemag.
But I love them all... It is interesting that even when I set out to shamelessly copy someone else's work, mine turn out different. For example: I was really just copying the work of mdemag but I ended up putting a lot more buttons on mine, and started making squares instead of circles.

I like my mittens unlined. I think the wool breaths better, so the hand doesn't sweat. I guess I've just never liked fleece. A quick search of Etsy today reveals that I'm in the minority. I'll be curious to see if any of these will sell on Etsy. If they don't, I may have to line with cashmere. I'll never give in and use fleece. I think it feels nasty. I think I react to fleece the way some react to wool. My hands get kind of prickly when I touch it...
