For Christmas I made a pair of slippers for my little sister. She is usually on her feet chasing kids and she lives in an old farm house, which can get a bit cold. I had seen a pattern that I wanted to do for myself, but decided it would be nice to make them for my sister first (that way I can make all my mistakes on her pair and make myself an awesomer pair later…just kidding). I had to felt them, so I decided to document the process.
Step 1 – You cut a hole int he box….wait that is the wrong gift. Ahem…knit up slipper pieces.
Step 2 – Have a cup of tea and sew pieces together.
Step 3 – Felt slippers with an accidentaly dyed red pillow case and 3 pairs of flip flops and 1 tennis ball.
Step 4 – Pull out every 5 mins to shape. *Warning: May result in very soggy feet.
Step 5 – Attach buttons and look sexy in finished slippers…or at least try to. :)
