Fiber Arts Friday: Felted Brooches from an Upcycled Sweater

I love recycling, upcycling, repurposing, reclaiming or whatever you want to call reusing something in a project! I felted a lambswool sweater quite a while ago with just this in mind.

Here's where my imagination took me:

I made funky fun brooches embellished with my vintage buttons which I blogged about in July.

I deliberately cut the shape of each brooch a little off kilter to add to their whimsical appeal.

Check out what other Fiberistas are up to on Fiber Arts Friday at Alpaca Farm Girl. Happy reusing!
