A friend of mine purchased something like this from a local upscale grocery store. “Seems like these would be really easy to make,” she said, “but who has the time?”
I have the time, I thought. That shouldn’t be too much trouble at all. Twenty minutes maybe. Two and a half hours later I had two lovely felted sweater pot holders. They’re the end of the year gift for our parent-child class teacher.
I would give detailed instructions and/or a pattern for these but they seem pretty straightforward. The eyes and wings are sewn onto the outside of felted wool sweater pieces while feet, nose, ears, etc. are placed between the identical front/back body pieces before those are sewn together either by machine or hand.
