I made this wrist cuff by cutting the arm of a wool sweater.
I then had to cut to make it smaller, then I felted it together, which is the solid white back of the piece.
Next I just felted on some flowers and a white border around the edge, and a design on the white solid part.
I had been saving wool sweaters to make into a felted purse, but this idea came to me.

Cool idea and awesome that you repurposed a sweater for it. I like the soft edges felting gave your design. I would wear this, and so would my daughter!
So did you felt it before felting on the flowers? And how stretchy is it? Is it easy to put on without any clasp-type thing, or do you use a closer?
Hi Susan, they are very stretchy. Some of them that I made I had to cut and sew smaller. I did felt the cuff first, I felted seperate wool on the outside because the sweater had been cut and I didn’t want it to frey. You can just slip them on, but you could make them with a button closure too or something like that.
