Felted Wool Headbands

With three tubs of wool sweaters to recycle, I figured I need to come up with something to use the wool for besides journals.

I like the way these headbands turned out.  They remind me of bookmarks although the elastic bands are a tad too big for bookmarks. 

Each band is sandwiched between two layers of wool and secured with machine stitching.

The flowers all have some combination of stitching and a bead in the center.

I love the light olive green with the punch of color in the center.

These are in my Etsy shop.  I invite you to take a look.  I'm still getting my store stocked but I'm thinking this could be fun. 

 Here's a few more pictures...
