Anyone else looking for non-breakable, but cute and affordable ornaments? This tutorial from Etsy's "Sweater Renewal" teaches you how simple it is to felt an old sweater by throwing it in your washing machine.
To felt your old wool sweater, just toss it in a pillow case into a top loading washing machine and run it in the shortest, gentlest cycle with some dish soap.
After you felt the sweater, you can download her stocking template and machine stitch around the two sides leaving the top open. If you like, you can crochet a flower as she did, but that's extra really!
