free pincushion patterns....lots of cute ones

There are 60 of them...

I thought I posted this here about an hour ago....but can't find it anywhere.

so I'm trying again...

Some of them take felted wool...I bought some wool sweaters today at the Goodwill and washed them in hot water to felt them...I got a rusty red one , an olive green vest, and an off white sweater. I've already washed the colored ones...the olive green one worked but the redish one didn't...

Have any of you tried this before? I made sure the sweaters were at least 90% wool....Do I need to maybe boil water for them?

I understand that you need to wash the sweaters in really super hot water. Maybe do an Internet search and you'll find the answers. Good luck!

I'm wondering if instead of sweaters...how about using wool fabric...like skirts from thrift store...

Does that work..anyone know?
