Handcraft Woollen Felted Blankets

Approximate $ Savings: $200-$500  

Do you have old woollen jumpers that are past wearing but still in good condition? Turn them into a luxurious woollen blanket! Simply soak them in warm water to shrink a little and prevent fraying, then cut them into squares and sew them into a patchwork blanket. You can also buy cheap woollen jumpers from the Op Shop to do the same. A quality, warm, woollen blanket would easily cost over $200 and up to $500 for cashmere. (I've found a number of cashmere jumpers for under $10 at the Op Shop.) You also get the joy of using something that you made yourself, and there's no price you can put on that!
