A few weeks ago I needed some felted wool for a project - the pattern I was following had some nice patterned wool whereas mine were solid colours and a bit boring. I remembered that husband had a jumper/sweater that had mysteriously shrunk while in his cupboard (you know THAT story)so I went on a search for it. It would be perfect for what I wanted it for however it was nowhere to be seen so I decided I must have already given it away to a charity group op shop. A couple of days later I went to an op shop looking for something woolly to felt and guess what - there was my husband's jumper - so I bought it back for $4! Yes it came back home.
I felted these other bits too although the ladies jacket almost disintegrated in my washing machine. (the photo is before the felting took place)
