These batts can also be used for spinning, felting and other crafts. Here is what I made this weekend.
A friend of mine was showing me a sweater that she unfortunately shrank!
|Now it was suitable only for a felting project.|
This is what I did -
|First I cut up the sweater and hand sewed it into a pillow form.|
|Then I found an old cotton tee shirt to use as ticking for the quilting batt fibre. I carefully laid the fibre onto the back of the ticking and tacked it into place.|
|Then I sewed the ticking together to create the inside fibre filled pillow to stuff the sweater with.|
|The completed project is a beautiful wool cashmere pillow with alpaca fibre. Very luxurious!|
