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.

A Day for Blue
Notice how the skirt has roses and the sweater has roses. I love those kinds of details!
I limit myself to recycled, reclaimed fabrics for my work. No going to the store to buy just the right shade of blue. I find clothing and fabric at the thrift shops or in other peoples stash of scraps. Today I made a brown kitty. I was thinking I wanted to do a brown and blue theme, so she would need blue clothes. Alas, I searched high and low for the right fabrics in my sewing room and came up empty. Almost. Finally I found a scrap of brown and pale aqua blue upholstery fabric. Not a big piece, mind you, but a just big enough piece. A matching sweater was soon uncovered. Also not a big piece, but a just big enough piece. So I have my brown and blue kitty. She has a very short skirt. That is the best I could do with the piece I had. I made the smallest hem I could. The other new girl is dark blue with different shades of gray and blue and almost green in the pattern part of the sweater. Blue stripe and a blue sweater seemed just right.
