DIY Wool Covers

If I were a sewing genius I would write up my own wool cover tutorial. But, since that isn’t even close to true I want to share a few of the wonderful tutorials already out there.

I tried my hand at these and through some trial and error (due to my issues, not the tutorials), I ended up with three pairs of adorable wool longies for Jemma.

Next time around I think I’ll change a few things:

  • I’ll be sure to add elastic to the waist. I used the waist band of the sweater for each of mine which has some stretch, but I think they would fit more securely with elastic.
  • I found conflicting information about felting versus not felting before sewing. I felted mine, but in the future I’ll try it without.

Have you made shorties or longies before? Please share! I’d love to see your finished product or hear what worked well for you!

… Oh so many ways to follow along …

    Great job! Those are cute! I've made one pair out of a sweater I had in the Goodwill pile. I think they turned out pretty good for the first pair. :) I need to hit up Goodwill one of these days to see if I can find any good sweaters to try again.

    Go Gretchen! They looks so cute! I'm really enjoying catching up on your wool week posts. I know nothing about wool, so I'm really glad you're doing a whole week about it :)
