Woolly Mammoth - Further Adventures in Upcycling

Following on from the felted bag that I proudly upcycled from my charity shop find, here is my second project created from the felted stripey jumper.

The previously unwanted and unloved jumper has been turned into a fab cuddly toy who is ready to be cherished by a new owner. The felted wool fabric is certainly soft enough for great cuddles or this woolly mammoth would also look great sitting on a shelf as an accessory in a child's bedroom.

Although I do have a confession to make - not all of the elephant is upcycled. The ears are made from pink felt that was lying around my workroon in need of a purpose, and as it perfectly matches the pink stripe in the wool I just had to use it to bring a further splash of colour to this handsome creature!


  1. Thanks Ada! I have had felted more jumpers - now just need to find the time to make more elephants! xx
