Felted Wool Sweater Owl

My sister gave me a Chapters card for Christmas and I purchased a book with it, called Countryside Softies.  I had read about how to felt wool sweaters, by basically putting them in the washing machine in hot water, then hanging them to dry.  I tried one sweater which happened to be an old one my DH was getting rid of.  With book in hand and some newly felted green wool sweater, I made this owl.  Isn't he cute!

Of course, once I was done this little guy, I headed out to Value Village looking for more wool sweaters to felt.  I have already made a couple of other items, which you will see in another post.  Stay tuned!
