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.

Wookie Wookie Christmas

I was planning a star wars theme gift for some special boys using the patterns from this Etsy Shop.  I finished Yoda.  Darn cute!  Buy her patterns.   I started Chewbacca, but didn't have the right yarn.  Since I'm too stubborn to BUY yarn, but wanted to find a good sweater to unravel, I kept my eyes open.  Low and behold I found the PERFECT sweater last week.  It is an old wool mohair blend.  It is a truly hideous sweater that I can only imagine a very old man wearing.   I ended up sewing my Wookie instead of crocheting him.  I may or may not make the bag from the Chewbacca pattern-I think he is sweet without the bag  as a generic wookie.  And if he is a generic wookie I can make several and these dear boys can have a little wookie party.  With Yoda supervising.
