What do you think of when you hear the words “warm and cozy?” Flannel jammies, a big down comforter, long johns…and maybe a wool sweater? I hope so because these DIY felted wool boot cuffs start with a wool sweater. Mine was scored at my local Goodwill but feel free to raid the closets where you live first. Once you have your sweater, check out my post on How To Make Felted Wool. This is important because felting the wool first allows you to cut your sweater and it won’t unravel. Very important. Here’s how my boot cuffs started:
Notice the buttons on the sleeve cuffs. I just couldn’t believe my luck! The next step is simply to lay your sweater very flat and cut the sleeves to the correct length for your boot cuffs. Make them a little long at first because you can always trim them if you want them shorter.
Believe it or not, that’s it. A pair of wool boot cuffs for the price of a thrift store sweater. Because you have already felted the wool, these are completely machine washable and can be dried as well.
