I've been working on a few projects myself. This one is for a dear friend who had given me the sweetest wool coat years ago that her boys had outgrown.
Her two boys had worn it and then three of my children wore it. After 5 kids it showed some wear but I knew there was great felting potential here. I put this well-loved little coat through the wash and made some fabulously thick felt with it.
It was the perfect felt for coasters so that is what it became, mitten-shaped coasters for both of us to remind us of our little ones that are no longer so little and to hold our coffee the next time we get to sit together.
What have you been working on lately?
