Needlefelt repairs - Mittens

Made by my mum
The hole. From bad to worse..
Cut a patch out of a old jumper
Turn inside out and put the foam underneath the hole
Put the patch on top of the hole
Put a thin layer of wool on top of the patch and start pricking with the needle
Check if the hole is well covered
Keep on pricking till patch and wool is one with the mitten
Comfy. Happy.
