Recycled wool log carrier/ log rack liner
I had a custom order placed a few weeks ago... by my husband ;) Apparently, the log carrier that I got in the free box at a rummage sale 5 years ago has had it. What do you think?
I decided to make a new one :) Since wool is the only naturally fire retardant material, there was no other choice in my mind. Sweaters, even felted, are a bit too stretchy, so I used a couple of wool skirts (suit material). Since the old one is out of commission, I used it as a pattern, and reused the handles. Had I not had them, thick dowel rods would have worked as well. Since I didn't have enough from one skirt to do the whole thing, I used 2 different skirts, and I actually like how that looks better. It looks a bit wonky in the pics, but it really isn't.
Great for carrying logs...
and a great liner for your log rack too!
