Felted Slippers with Chicadee


Okay, Here is my second try at needle felting.I am starting to get the hang of it and it is fun. Only stabbed my finger one time. I bought a six pack of needles from the slimchicken web site http://www.etsy.com/shop/slimchicken?ref=seller_info   and it really paid off. There are different sizes for doing different things. I also sent her (Jodi) a picture and asked her to send the colors of merino wool roving  that she sees in the picture so I would have all to choose from for the project. She even sent me small amounts of a mohair and another sample that has real shine to it called Firestar.It looked funny to me to have the bird on only one slipper and the other plain so I added a little. This came out larger than I wanted it to but how do you get all the colors in on a smaller bird? lol  These will be for sale in my Etsy Store.

    I just love these slippers. On the white it is stunning. I was privileged enough to get a pair of these slippers and I love them. I have been a fan of my sisters slipper socks for years and have given many a gift. These are by far the most comfortable and warm slippers. I happen to have a butterfly on mine and it is so neat. I never knew the creative side of my sis like this. She has the determination to learn anything. Over the years the degree she has come with machine knitting is phenomenal. She even has the blue ribbons to prove it. she is always so modest about her talents and am so glad she is able to share her talent with others. Great job, sis, as always. Love, Susie
