Just in time to send it to school with Pumpkin....
She needed to take a blanket or towel for quiet/reading time
and me being me, I couldn't bring myself to give her
a store bought blankie...
I wanted it to be special
My inspiration came, believe it or not, from this...
the ceramic tile in our entry way.
I've always loved how this tile was laid
and I knew that I could incorporate something like this
with felted wool as I could stretch and pull as need be.
I cut up 4 different thrifted wool sweaters.
the mauve ribbed was pure cashmere
the pink and dark purple were a cashmere/wool blend
the red was a wool/angora blend
and the stripe was pure wool
they all felted beautifully
and considering all the squares I cut it came together really quickly
Especially using my 5 and 10 inch "square it ups"
from Jodi's Etsy shop
Pumpkin is so happy with it
I think it made her first day at school really special.
p.s. speaking of Jodi and her blog Pleasant Home.com
