Sweater redux

I bought a few wool sweaters at the Salvation Army and felted them in the washing machine. Now, I am looking for inspiration to turn them into something else. In the meantime, I made myself a pair of slippers, leg warmers and a jeweled hat.
For the slippers, I used the pattern from here. I cut the sleeves from another sweater and felted them by hand.
For the hat, I used the instructions from here. I bought a bag of "jewels" from the DollarStore, glued them with the glue gun and voilĂ !
