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.

Quilt Bears

I'm trying something new. I used cutter quilts for these, and stuffed them with felted sweaters. The stuffing can be much firmer than in a sweater bear, because the fabric doesn't stretch. Unless, of course, the quilt is really worn. One if these will be for display only because the fabric nearly fell apart as I made the bear.

New friends
