Recycling Fleece Project.

It's wardrobe clear out time - and I found that several fleeces were worn out or tired in places, but when I piled them up I thought the colours were too nice to just send to a charity shop where they may or may not get used.......


So I started by cutting out the sections of fleece and discarding the stitching - there's the mess.


And this is the pile of fleece created so far.


Now I've a couple of ideas for this (including a quilty idea) but I'm pausing in case any good ideas come to mind in the next day or two.  Suggestions welcome.  

And just to show that the mood is generally relaxed in the house today, here's Honey fast asleep!

  1. Well, I am not sure what you can do about the fleece bits, but I do love your photo of Honey all snuggled up!

  2. This is a great idea! You could pull out the closest matching fleeces and resew them into new sweatshirts, but quilting sounds perfect too :-)

    1. A scheme is forming in my mind. Patchworky new fleece sweatshirt?
