Silly Chickens from Felted Sweaters

This weekend I organized my felted sweaters.  I have more scraps, but these are the sweaters I have accumulated.

I've been looking for some fun ways to use them lately.  I have a few ideas, but haven't gotten around to executing most of them yet.

I did however make these silly chickens.

I got the idea here but used felted sweaters rather than fabric.  It's sort of a vague how-to / tutorial / pattern.

I've decided that almost anything you can sew with fabric, you can also sew with felted sweaters.  This makes me very excited. 

Have you ever seen these toys by Cate and Levi before?  They are made by a Canadian designer from recycled, felted sweaters.  There are so many great ideas here. Sadly, I will have to take a DIY approach as the pricetags are quite high!

Here are a few more photos of my silly chickens:


  1. Those are CUTE! Have you checked my blog for ideas? I have lots of tutorials on there. If you are looking for a specific project online, I would look for for fleece patterns... fleece doesn't need a seam allowance like felted wool.

  2. LOVE those chickens! They are adorable!

  3. Cute chickens! I love the patterns, too. :)
