Crafting 365, Day 3-Arm warmers

Arm warmers, originally uploaded by homemadeoriginals.

Tonight, I made these cozy arm warmers from a recycled wool sweater. that was lightly felted. I cut off the arms about 10 inches up from the cuff. Then I cut a small slit in the seam for thumb hole and stitched around the hole with button-hole stitch. I cut off the bottom of the sweater and attached ribbing from there to the tops of the arm warmers so they would fit snugly. Unfortunately, this photo doesn't show the color detail of the felted sweater very well, but it has purple, grey, and burgundy in addition to black in the design.
