My summertime bare feet are feeling the chill all of a sudden but I’m not ready to break out the Padraigs just yet, and my old Moroccan leather slippers were fast falling apart: so I made a wee pair of felt slippers! I used some left over 100% wool felt from Solomon’s stocking, and an accidentally felted lambswool jumper from my mother in law.
I bought the chamois for the soles from a sheepskin tannery nearby. The pattern is from Claire Youngs’ Scandinavian Needlecraft, and is really easy- I had very little of that petrol blue thread though so I used a different design for the embroidery. One of the circles is slightly wonky, and there are some things that are better on Slipper Number Two than Number One (always the way) but all in all they should see me into the chilly, full-on-woolly-socks-and-boot-style-slipper months nicely.
