Felted Sweater Throw

Get cozy on the couch this fall with this fun fabric throw made from upcycled wool sweaters. Decide the desired size of your throw and determine how many 9-inch squares of felted wool fabric you will need; we made a few of our large squares by sewing four 5-inch squares with right sides together using a 1/2-inch seam allowance. Once you have all of your squares, arrange in an attractive pattern. Sew together rows of blocks using a 1/2-inch seam allowance, then sew the rows together, matching the seams. Back the quilt with a cozy flannel sheet, sew perle cotton ties at the intersections, then topstitch 1-inch from the edge around the perimeter to finish.

Fall Crafts Tip: To create the nonraveling fabric, turn the pieces inside out and toss into the washing machine on a hot-cycle wash with detergent; machine- or air-dry.
