Here at Sweater Surgery I have a new favorite tool- the Crafter's Companion Gemini Die Cutting machine and the Crafter's Companion Mixed Media dies today's- the bird mixed media die. 

These two tools will die cut recycled sweaters like a dream!

With the hot weather just around the corner cool drinks will be by my side and that means new cup cozies.

 The cuff part of the sleeve of a wool felted sweater works great to keep a drink cool.

After I die cut the body of the bird and the wing I stitched a pearl bead onto the body of the bird.

I glued the bird body onto the cuff while it was on the cup along with the wing.

I am sure these will work for hot drinks as well. Be sure to come on back to see more recycled sweater die cutting creativity with all the mixed-media dies.
