Would you like to transform your old wool sweaters into something fabulous?
I am so excited to let you know what I have been doing the past month, and to let you know that I just published my first online class. It has been a month full of studying, researching, filming and editing. A challenge was given to me to publish my first online class within a month, and I did it, with one day to spare. Whew! This class is an online class with Skillshare, called DIY: How To Felt Wool Sweaters.
****I now have the class available on TEACHABLE. If you don’t want to JOIN a membership on Skillshare, this is a GREAT OPTION.

My mind is spinning with all the fun classes I want to teach using upcycled wool sweaters, but I felt (no pun intended), that I should start with the basics.
Felted wool sweater fabric is like crafting gold! For those of you who like to sew, you are going to love all the fun things you can make with this cozy, tightly woven material. Here are just a few patterns and ideas of things you can create using upcycled sweaters.
In this upcycled sweaters class, I am going to:
- show you how to choose the perfect sweater
- teach you how to felt the sweater (shrink it down)
- give you some awesome tips on how to store and care for your felted wool sweaters
- help you know how to use your sweater fabric most effectively
After you take this class, you will be ready to dive into your first upcycled sweater project.
