My lastest upcycling obsession is turning vintage woollen blankets into various cosy things. I say various, although I have only made tea cozies so far. Very snuggly ones! I have been scouring second hand shops to find these blankets and I have found some great bargains. Some of the blankets were still in such good condition that I have kept large sections to make into couch blankets or throws, they were just too good to cut into little pieces.
But some of them had worn patches or discoloured bits, these are the ones that I have been turning into cozies, carefully choosing the still-good sections and giving them a second chance at life!
