Step 1: 2 left over sleeves / 2 wine bottle covers!

These are left over sleeves from another project. They are from a men's lambs wool sweater that I found at a thrift store for $4.

Step 2: Pin felting

Pin felting a process where you bind fibers together to form a design in to a fabric. For best  results use natural fibers.The brown fabric is lambs wool that has been washed in the mashing machine on a hot/cold setting. When washing I included items that wold help agitate the fibers to for m a denser fabric for pin felting.  To apply the design I used wool roving a pin felting needles. A pin felting needle has a barbed tip that helps bind the fibers together. I inserted a foam block inside the sleeve then poke the wool into the fabric repeatedly with the felting pin. I actually have 2 different kinds of pins. the one pictured is a contraption that holds 5 pins. I use this one as I lay out my design. Then I go back with a single pin to refine and do detail work.

Once your design is finished flip it inside out. Sew a seam along the bottom, trim and you are done. After inserting the bottle of wine I realized that there was too much fabric at the bottom so I added a seam part of the way up the side.
