This is the coolest thing. I almost have no words. Just. So. Cool.


What a fantastic idea! Thanks for the tutorial.


Really quite beautiful!
Found your blog from Feeling Stitchy and so glad I did!

Cristy Davies

This is awesome. I think these moths are lovely!


Beautiful! I never could resist a good mending technique.


Lisa, so sorry, I lost the link to you and your moths when I was editing. I've put it back in now :)

Sonia / Cozy Memories

I really should pay you to come visit me & teach me how to needle felt (I have no tool & no skill for sure !) Because these are simply awesome, gorgeous & so smart !
Thanks for taking the time to put up a tutorial, I'm sure it's going to inspire many many people !


Oh Sonia, no lessons needed. Just get a large sponge, like a car washing sponge and a felting needle or two from a local craft shop (or online).
I guarantee you will be hooked. When I taught my friend Fi she made the most beautiful bird in about 20 minutes on her first try.
Then you just need a bit of wool roving (I can help you with that) and fabric to poke the wool into.
It's relatively quick to do and so cathartic, the best fun to be had by stabbing something! Perfect outlet for me :)


Grgeatest idea ever. You're awesome!


I got awfully excited when i read the first part of your post title! We found moth holes in two of my sweetie's favorite sweaters - it would be so great to be able to save them. But I don't think this would be the answer he is looking for!!!

I on the other hand........

Great tutorial, Joanie. Brilliant way to save a much loved sweater. thank you for sharing.


this is so brilliant and beautiful
thanks for the inspiration
as always


The moths just popped up in my Dropbox, you sweet friend!! They are gorgeous--idea and execution so brilliant--and I'm so inspired. Coming up I have swimming lessons to sit through and an all-day regatta to watch, and I know just the projects I'll be working on!


Wow, this is absolutely stunning!


What a great idea! I love your moths and have a torn spot on a favorite shirt for this project. So glad I discovered you!


Love this idea! Beautiful and witty. :-)


Absolutely gorgeous and breathtaking! Now I'm off to fill my wardrobe with felted moths ;-) Thank you so much for the tutorial Joanie ♥


Those moth patches look fantastic! Very impressed.
And a great idea to save a sweater

what a super neat way to handle the problem!! I'm impressed and so is my husband!! We sit back to back on our computers and I made him turn around to look! I haven't any "holey' sweaters but there must be a way to use the butterfly!!

Susan Elliott

This is such a great idea!! I love your moth patches. I've come via Craft Gossip and SO glad I did!

Keep crafting and blogging! Came by your blog via "twig vase" on pinterest. It makes me want to create more things.....even if I'm not a sewer...if you want to avoid moths, try conkers!(on my blog if you don't know about them) But great to let them chew and embellish like this.....

Anita van der Wouden

Like your blog, nice felt butterfly's!I heard from your blog from Dianne, we stayed at het vacation lodge.
