It's Tutorial Tuesday! No sew recycled wool projects!

I am always saying that pretty much anything you can make with fleece or craft felt, you can make with recycled wool (felted sweaters), and these 2 no-sew projects are no exception!

This first one, is a method of joining squares with slits in them. Click here to go to the original tutorial on the How About Orange blog.

With this, you can make trivets, a table runner... maybe even a blanket! I tried it out with some felted merino, and it worked great.

The next one is a no sew blanket edging.

This tutorial is for fleece, but of course I used recycled wool :). Click here to go to the original tutorial on the Nebraska Views blog.

Fabulous ideas--and making the "squares with slits" project would be another great way of using different color leftover wool and it would have a quilt effect.

Great idea! I think it would look really cool with squares of different colors.

Great ideas there - I like the edging especially.
