Greetings from Lisa,
owner of Snug As A Bug!
Thanks for buying my Snug As A Bug Recycled Wool Sweater Quilt Pattern.
I am so happy to be able to share my creative idea with you.
I am presently in my fifth year since I created my very first recycled
wool sweater quilt.
I hope you have fun creating your very own and that it brings as much
joy to you as mine have brought to me.
If you’d like to, email or send me a picture of your quilt made
from this pattern. I’d love to add it to my Snug As A Bug photo
album where many photos of my quilts are kept.
Buy a pattern to learn all the tricks
of the trade!
#1 “What a great idea! Did you think
of it yourself?”
Yes, I did think of it myself. The idea was
born out of necessity. I was cold! It’s true.
#2 “How do you keep them from unraveling
when you cut them?”
All I can say is, they just don’t unravel.
If they were woven and not knitted there would be a problem. Trust
me, I know, I have literally cut up thousands of sweaters!
#3 “Where do you get all the sweaters?”
I go to Salvation Army stores, rummage sales,
second-hand shops, and friends and strangers have been known to
drop them off at my house!
#4 “What type of batting do you use
I do not use anything in between the layers.
I tried it once and it felt more like a mat and I wanted a snugly,
soft, “wrap it all around you” feeling.
#5 “Are they all wool?”
Yes, I am a natural fiber lover and I live in
a cold climate. I love wool!
#6 “What is the backing made of?”
It is made of 100% cotton flannel for that snugly,
soft, “wrap it all around you” feeling and again, I
am a natural fiber lover! I love cotton!
