I was inspired by Zed’s post about felted cuffs. http://feltingandfiberstudio.com/2012/07/25/wrist-cuffs/
I have some felted water bottle covers that have been hanging around for to long.
Everyone tells me what a good idea they are but no one buys them. So I decided to repurpose them. I started by cutting them in to rings and then cutting across them to make them flat. I also made a slit at one end of each for the buttons.
As you can see they look kind of wobbly before they are refelted. I rolled them in a place mat made out of sticks. They are great for little projects. I kept stretching them so they would not end up to short .
and the yellow ones
All the covers are now cuffs. I haven’t managed to get anything else done on them. I have picked out a bag of buttons to use for the closures. Then I plan to do some beading and if I get my machine serviced some free motions embroidery. I have never tried it before.
Here are the buttons I’ve picked out.
What have you repurposed?
