A daily dose of creative suspense.

Recycled felt sweaters

Pam’s hat

I made this hat for Pam’s birthday. Made from what else but 100 percent recycled felted wool from an old sweater. We saw it in a store in Canada and she loved it so I figured out a pattern and made her one of her own. Isn’t it cute?

I’m selling my stuff on Etsy!

I sold my Purple Monkey bag on Etsy.com and now I’ve posted 4 more bags to see how it goes. Here’s the large Frog Face Purse. It’s made from 100 percent up-cycled felted wool, the spider on the cell phone holding tongue is made from a real garnet stone and glass beads. If you like him you can buy it here.

The Frog Face Purse $45.00

Indian Runner Ducks

I made these two live size ducks for my daughter who loves the real ducks but she couldn’t take the real ones with her, so these recycled wool sweater stuffies stand in for them.


The Zombie Family

These cute little zombies were made from felted wool recycled sweaters, lace and beads.


Adin’s Bacon-ate-or

I made this for a young boy who loves Wendy’s Bacon-ate-tors. It is made from 100% wool sweaters. The seseame seeds are hand-sewn seed beads. He loved it.

What's up?


I needed a bag to hold my new blackberry so I whipped up this little guy from a felted sweater, using the zipper for the mouth.
