This isn’t really a how-to kind of post. I just wanted to show you one of the other things you can make with old wool sweaters that you have felted. You may remember KDB, in whose house Kristopf and I made those amazing cocoa-caramel-pecan cookies. This was a present for her for Christmas.
I found an image of a scottie dog on the internet and used it as a pattern to cut it out of a sweater. I then blanket stitched it onto a red background from another sweater.
Then I took a cardigan that was slightly larger than the cushion I wanted to make out of it. I cut out two squares, from the front of the cardigan and the back, making sure that the buttoned opening to the cardigan was in the centre on the front.
Then I sewed the scottie square onto the back of the cardigan (which will now be the front of your cushion) and then sewed the back and the front together.
