The Only Homemade Gift This Year...

...was for my new little nephew, Reid. I made this simple little quilt from felted sweaters that I purchased from the local thrift store. The pattern (not that you really need one) came from Betz White's book Warm Fuzzies. It is my first ever quilt and I'm delighted with the way it turned out.

I was purging old clothes from my closet and found 5(!) very old 100% wool sweaters. They all went into the washing machine on hot. Now, what should I do with my new felted goodness??? I'm thinking Christmas Stockings for next year.

This is great, I've been thinking of starting my own wool sweater collection to do the same.
