Last Minute Gift Making

Christmas vacation is so wonderful! Since we're not running here and there, the house is clean, and most of the Christmas cooking and baking is complete, I found time to create a couple last minute gifts - and one of 'em is a gift to me!
Using pieces from felted wool sweaters, I made these scarves.
A completely practical accessory turned ultra chic!
I so enjoy playing with felted wool. The possibilities of what to make are endless.
