Trash to Treasure

Not sure what to do with all those old sweaters? Felt it! With this crafty kit your teen can repurpose her stretched out, pilled or undersized wool garments into a felted bag, fairy slippers, and mittens. The kit includes illustrated instructions, patterns and photographs, and additional yarn, fleece, and thread to help crafters create something recycled but highly wearable. A great way to teach environmental responsibility and provide a creative outlet, and a savior for all those ugly Christmas sweaters! (Harrisville Designs, $14.95)
