Recycled/Upcycled Sweater

Ok...so not a major effort here but I hope you enjoy it!

I purchased a 100% wool men's argyle sweater at GFC and washed it in hopes it would felt.  However, it didn't felt as much as I wanted but I decided to proceed with my plans anyway!

Using some batting material (recycled from old quilt), I stitched my sweater cut out to it ensuring the design was centered.  I then placed the right sides together and sewed around the outsides leaving an opening for turning.  Once turned rightside out, I closed the opening with blind stitch and sewed a border around. 
Wa-la!  
Stylish hotpad/potholder!
