Cold Neck...

Today marks the start of a few CRAFT WITH CHILDREN posts...
#1 easy scarves
Tuesday was just a 'touch' nippy as i was sat at the sewing machine or cutting fabric all day.
Now, I am a great fan of the 'scarf' as a warming accessory but it can in the way of ones work (visions of myself getting the scarf caught under the sewing machine and being sewn into a line of bunting) So.... TA DA!!>>> i had a good rummage through a basket of mine - a basket full of felted old wool sweaters... I cut the bottom off an old felted sweater and made me a neck warmer / scarflette / cowl thingy.
It was especially nice as it was ribbed. When i turned it inside out there was a fantastic seam that had a bumpy effect - too nice to hide so i used it the wrong side out.
No need to worry about cutting holes in as it is FELTED and won't fray (lurrve felt!)
Then i added two yummy huge buttons....

A few dramatic fashion shots to give you the full perspective...
An easy peasy project for any age or ability.

The possibilities are endless ...This huge cowl below is the entire body of a VERY felted chocolate brown jumper. It has been doubled over and pinned in place by a very big button brooch.

It's an easy project and fun to recycle x
